ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Non-displaced transverse fracture of right femoral neck.

History: A 76-year-old woman presents to her primary care manager with right hip pain. No known history of trauma.

Findings: Anterior-posterior radiograph of the pelvis, and frog-leg radiograph of the right hip show diffusely diminished bone density of the pelvis and right hip. No periosteal reaction or fracture is seen. Coronal T1-weighted MR image of the pelvis demonstrates linear low-signal-intensity area extending from the medial cortex of the right femoral neck into the medullary canal and is consistent with fracture. On the T2-weighted fat-saturated coronal MR image, more extensive area of high-signal-intensity is present consistent with a combination of the fracture and post-traumatic edema and inflammation.

Ddx: Non-displaced transverse fracture of right femoral neck •Stress fracture (abnormal stress to normal bone) vs. •Insufficiency fracture (normal stress to abnormal bone)

Dxhow: Confirmed by MRI.

Exam: Physical exam information is not available.

No MeSH data available.
