  • Figure 1. Multiparametric MRI of the pelvis: a presacral mass (asterisk) showing a hypointense signal on T1WI with thin wall without any post contrast ring-enhancement or intramural solid nodule, hyperintense signal on T2WI, restriction of diffusion seen as bright signal on DWI and hyposignal on ADC map, the latter being pathognomonic of epidermoid cyst. Note the last sacral segments and coccygeal agenesis (arrowheads)
  • Figure 2. Axial and sagittal reformat enhanced-CT scanner of the brain and sagittal enhanced-CT scanner reformat of the abdomen and pelvis showing multiple air bubbles in the dural space (arrowheads), leptomeningeal enhancement (short arrow) suggestive of meningitis. Note the sacro-coccygeal anomaly with communication of the dural sac with the presacral space (long arrow).
  • Figure 3. Multiparameter MRI cuts centered on the pelvis and the lumbo-sacral spine showing a heterogeneous partially enhancing collection in the presacral space (asterisk) with direct communication with the dural sac through a large defect (short arrow). Note the dural enhancement (arrowheads) suggestive of extension of the infectious/inflammatory process to the medullary canal
