ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Tear of the Achilles tendon- almost complete (Grade II tear)

History: 50 y/o WM with left posterior lower leg pain x 2months, made worse with walking/standing.

Ddx: 1.Almost complete rupture Achilles tendon- Grade II tear 2.Almost complete rupture of Achilles tendon (Grade II tear) with interstitial tear and/or tendinopathy of the proximal Achilles tendon

Exam: Decreased strength with plantar flexion, + Achilles TTP, Normal previous plain x-ray.

No MeSH data available.


Sagittal T1-weighted MR image shows almost complete disruption of the low-signal-intensity Achilles tendon at a level proximal to the ankle joint with only a few wisps of fibers of the Achilles tendon fibers distal to that point. There is also thickening of the remainder of the proximal Achilles tendon.
