ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Gluteus minimus partial tear

History: Pt c/o pain in right hip, over greater for several months following uneventful SVD (single vaginal delivery). Exacerbated by weight bearing and lifting.

Findings: Axial T2-weighted MR image and STIR coronal MR image show an area of high signal intensity at anterior tubercle of the right greater trochanter. The right gluteus medius tendon is thickened, with high signal intensity on these fat suppressed MR images. Mild asymmetric increased signal is present on the fat-suppressed MR images, adjacent to the greater trochanter within the soft tissues.

Ddx: Trochanteric bursitis Gluteus minimus tear, avulsion Metastatic disease Infection

Exam: Pain is reproducible with palpation of anterior greater trochanter.

No MeSH data available.
