My daughter recently had an MRI. The report noted that she has a 7mm bone lesion involving the T2 vertebral body which is heterogeneously hyperintense on T1 and T2 images. We have a follow up appointment with her orthopedic doctor. I would like to be better prepared for what could be the cause of this lesion. She is a 25 year old single mother of an 18 month old baby girl. Please lead me to the right direction.
It is difficult to diagnose the bone lesion here. Perhaps a Bone scan will throw some more light. What you should be looking for is the nature of the bone lesion, if it is solid, semisolid or cystic. You will also have to consider if there was any illness prior to the discovery of the lesion.
Thank you for your time . She is healthy and no prior illness. My daughter has a history of IBS. Other than that she is healthy. The only complaint is that when she has pain her two fingers go numb as well as numbness on her right side.
Her IBS has been under control. She takes elevil everynight before bed. The orthopedic Doctor has suggested that it could be a ostoid osteoma, but he hasn't seen on in thirty years. There is also another lesion that he noticed on her mri. She is going for a bone scan on march 7th. You have been very helpful. I really thank you for your time.I like to have some understanding of whats going on.
