ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Partial Thickness Tear of the Rectus Femoris Myotendinous Junction

History: While sprinting the last 100 yards of a 3 mile run, this 30 year-old male developed acute onset of anterior thigh pain.

Findings: Increased T2 signal intensity around and within the rectus femoris muscle, most notable at the myotendinous junction. Increased signal begins at the level of the lesser trochanter and extends distally for 15-20cm. There is only partial disruption of the myotendinous junction. No pathology noted in the bone marrow at the lesser tuberosity.

Ddx: 1. Muscular fiber tear (Rectus Femoris) 2. Soft Tissue mass 3. Hematoma

Exam: Palpable painful mass in left thigh

No MeSH data available.
