ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Fracture Blister

History: 26 y/o Hispanic male with a right leg twisting injury while skiing 48 hours ago.

Findings: Plain films demonstrate a comminuted fracture of the distal tibia with intraarticular extension and associated soft tissue swelling seen in the region of the right ankle and foot. There is a well marginated ovoid density which measures 4.1 x 3.4 x 2.4 cm seen overlying the soft tissues near the distal tibial fracture. Two similar smaller densities are seen just inferior to the larger density.

Ddx: Fracture blister Overlying density

Dxhow: Physical examination in the emergency department.

Exam: Diffuse swelling and ecchymosis encompassing the right ankle and an inability to bear weight on his right leg.

No MeSH data available.


Ovoid lesion extending medially from the soft tissues overlying the fracture site, with attenuation measurements consistent with fluid density.
