In general, there are five lumbar vertebras in normal human subjects. But occasionally there are six. In such a situation, a radiologist need to discern between lumbarization of S1 (S1 vertebra becomes segmented and mimics L5) or due to hypoplastic 12 th ribs, hence the T12 vertebra is wrongly assumed to be L1. These interesting images serve a multimodality approach to right aplasia/left hypoplasia of 12 th rib, injury of left 11 th rib and subluxation of left 11 th Costovertebral joint in a patient with lumbar back pain.
