ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Stress fracture

History: 41 year old female runner with right foot pain for three weeks.

Findings: A bone scan performed with 25 mCi of Tc99m-MDP demonstrates focal, intensely increased uptake in the right cuboid bone in the area of tenderness. Mildly increased uptake in bilateral sessamoid bones is consistent with stress reactive changes.

Ddx: 1)Stress fracture 2)Infection (osteomyelitis) 3)Osteonecrosis

Dxhow: History and physical exam

Exam: Tenderness to palpation of the right dorsal midfoot

No MeSH data available.


Intense, focally increased uptake in the right cuboid bone is consistent with stress fracture.  The flaring activity in the plantar view is most likely due to hyperemia or a streak artifact from the intense activity in the fracture site.
