Tuesday Tip: Romanus Lesions 2 X-Ray & CT Findings

Today’s Tuesday Tip continues with Enthesitis and Romanus lesions in ankylosing spondylitis. The changes seen at the endplate corners in enthesitis are progressive.

  1. It starts with inflammation,
  2. then erosion
  3. and as the inflammation reduces that region is replaced by fatty infiltration
  4. and at the end stage, by sclerosis.
