2 Infectious and Inflammatory Conditions Meningitis is the most common CNS infection affecting children. The diagnosis of meningitis is based on the analysis of CSF, obtained by lumbar puncture; the absence of inflammatory changes such as leptomeningeal enhancement on CT or MRI must not be used to exclude this diagnosis. Affected children present with fever, irritability, lethargy, headaches and nuchal rigidity; seizures, cranial neuropathies or stroke may develop. Imaging is performed mainly for the evaluation of children who are deteriorating neurologically despite apparently appropriate antibiotic therapy, in order to determine the cause of deterioration.
Anomalies of the caudal spine must be considered in patients with urogenital or anorectal malformations. Sagittal and coronal imaging of the entire spine with MRI is recommended to identify the location of the conus medullaris (normal level: T10 to L2), associated lipomas or syrinxes, anomalous segments of spinal cord, and anomalies of dorsal closure or segmentation. Transaxial T1- and T2-WI should be obtained from the conus through the bottom of the sacrum to assess for a fatty (T1 hyperintense on MRI) and/or thickened filum terminale.
