ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Metatarsal stress fracture

History: Patient with 5 weeks of right midfoot pain with walking and weightbearing.

Findings: Positive activity on inital blood flow and pool images in the right midfoot. Delayed imaging demonstrates focal uptake in the region of the metatarsals. These findings are confirmed with the presence of extensive periostal reaction/callous formation on the right third metatarsal on correlative plain films.

Ddx: Stress fracture If only bone scans were present and history was unknown, then both infection and neoplasm must be entertained.

Dxhow: The given imaging and history is sufficient for diagnosis.

Exam: Patient with limps into exam room. Active and passive motion of foot reproduce patient's symptoms.

No MeSH data available.
