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.


Sagittal T1 demonstrates diffuse signal throughout the tibia with multiple low-signal fractures extending to the articular surface.  The joint effusion expanding the suprapatellar bursa is clearly seen (arrows).
