PDF English. Keywords: Magnetic resonance imaging; Myelitis; Transverse myelitis; Schistosomiasis. Abstract: The conus medullaris is frequently affected by inflammatory and infectious lesions which many times are hardly differentiated because of the similarity of their clinical history and physical examination among the different etiologies. Magnetic resonance imaging presents high sensitivity in the detection of these lesions and plays a relevant role in the diagnosis as well as in the evolutive control of the condition. The present pictorial essay with selected cases from the archives of the authors' institution is aimed at demonstrating imaging findings which might help in the diagnosis of a specific etiology amongst inflammatory an infectious conditions and in the differentiation with diseases of neoplastic and vascular etiologies, for example.
