CT detection of retroperitoneal gas associated with gas in intervertebral disks



CT detection of retroperitoneal gas associated with gas in intervertebral disks



Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography 8(2): 232-236



Three cases are presented with computed tomographic evidence of gas in retroperitoneal soft tissues in association with the so-called "vacuum phenomenon" (Knutsson sign) in lumbar disks. We review the explanations of Knutsson sign and offer an explanation of how extradiscal gas can occur in association with it.
