Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Thank you for getting back and mentioning the details of MRI report of your son. First of all, I would like to reassure you that these findings do not represent any serious illness. Loss of lordosis means loss of normal curvature in the spine. Normally, the cervical spine region (neck area) has an inward curvature. However, if there is neck pain or muscle spasm, this curvature may be lost. Regarding lymph nodes in the neck, we need to look for infection, in the throat, nose, scalp, etc. A course of antibiotics may be needed, if infection is found. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
