Figure 1: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of a 62-year-old woman with brucellar spondylitis showed that the C5-T1 (a, b, c), T5-T6 (d, e, f), and L4-L5 (g, h, i) intervertebral discs and vertebral bodies were hypointense on T1-weighted images (T1WI) and heterogeneous on T2-weighted images (T2WI) and short-T1 inversion recovery (STIR). Follow up images show that the L4-S1vertebral body is fixed by the nail rod, and the position is stable without looseness 6 months after discharge (J, K)
