Click 39 year-old female with Guillain-Barré syndrome secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus. She presented with progressive bilateral lower extremity weakness. Sagittal TSE T2- weighted MR image demonstrates disc herniation at T12-L1 level. The herniated disk is seen to cause minimally conus medullaris compression.
