There was subtotal destruction of C2 and C6 vertebral bodies, and to a lesser degree C5, with extensive marrow edema and enhancement involving the cervical vertebrae down to T2. Nevertheless, there were two large paravertebral abscesses: one opposite the right side of C2 with small epidural component and a larger multiloculated pre- and paravertebral abscess more to the right side with epidural extension through right C6-C7 neural foramen. Moreover, there is an inferior extension reaching the posterior mediastinum. The two abscesses appeared connected. There was gibbus deformity at C6-C7 level.
