Inflammatory lesions of the anterior chest wall displayed by whole-body MRI in an AS patient complaining about chest wall pain. Bone marrow edema (arrows) in both parts of the manubriosternal joint on coronal and sagittal short τ inversion recovery (STIR) sequences in a 46-year-old human leukocyte antigen B27 (HLA-B27)-positive male patient with ankylosing spondylitis and anterior chest wall pain.
