Mulfitidus Muscle Denervation Secondary to Vertebral Metastatic Lesion: A Potential Diagnostic Pitfall

Ademar Lucas Junior

Introduction: The assessment of cancer patients is of great clinical and radiological complexity. Distinguishing between neoplastic tissue infiltration and indirect lesions is key for correct local staging.

Methods: Discussion of extrinsic (metastatic) peripheral neuropathy and muscular (multifidus) denervation cases, mainly based on MRI.

Results: Precise anatomic correlation between vertebral metastases, neural compression/infiltration and selective muscular denervation.

Conclusion: MRI imaging enables highly accurate differentiation between muscular neoplastic infiltration and edemas resulting from secondary peripheral neuropathy.
