Unilateral Infectious Sacroiliitis Detected on Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Bone Scan

Bibi Ayesha, Maham Mehmood*

Infectious Sacroiliitis is rare and so can be missed. Our patient was an otherwise healthy male who presented with symptoms mimicking sciatica. On presentation the patient was febrile and was noted to have tenderness of the lower back and limitation of hip movement. Inflammatory markers were raised, and the patient was started on antibiotics. MRI of pelvis was suspicious for osteomyelitis. Three phase bone scans were consistent with infectious sacroiliitis. The patient was successfully discharged home on oral antibiotics and on the follow up had an uneventful recovery.
