To help recognise the MR imaging features of acute septic unilateral sacroiliitis affecting either the synovial or ligamentous portions of the sacroiliac joint ; (Marrow oedema, joint effusion, juxta-articular soft tissue oedema+/- collections) .

To increase awareness of uncommon causative organisms (Gram +ve cocci, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Brucella) and the utility of serological testing in addition to appropriate clinical history .


To avoid the pitfall of injudicious use of intra-articular steroid injections for symptomatic relief with potential of causing patient harm and  serious complications .
