ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Tibial Plateau Fracture

History: 24 year old man with knee pain after a fall.

Findings: • Plain radiographs of the knee do not reveal a fracture lucency or step-off at the articular surface. • There is joint effusion present. • MR images through the knee reveal diffuse edema throughout the tibial with low signal extending to the articular surface consistent with a comminuted tibial plateau fracture.

Ddx: None

Dxhow: MRI

Exam: KNEE: Tender to palpation over both medial and lateral joint lines. Diffuse soft tissue edema.

No MeSH data available.


AP and lateral radiographs of the knee do not reveal a fracture lucency or step-off at the tibial articular surface.  A joint effusion is present, and seen best in the suprapatellar bursa on the lateral (arrows). No fat-fluid level is observed.
