Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. Usually, lytic is used as a secondary term to anteriolisthesis to describe possibly a fatigue fracture of your back...this terminology is also used to describe "the kind of damage" ....so in essence, a fracture caused bone slippage?

Other possible descriptors would be congenial (ex. you were born this way) to describe the type of injury. Does this help explain your MRI?

Let me know if you have additional questions.
