ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Heterotopic ossification

History: A 39 year-old man was injured in a gunfight. The patient suffered a GSW to the right buttock that exited the scrotum. The patient underwent an exploratory laparotomy, found to be negative, and a transscrotal exploration that found injury to the bladder and urethra. A probing of the right hip wound revealed that the injury went posterior to the femur and did not invade the capsule. Approximately four months post-injury, the patient reported a progressive limiting of his hip range of motion and inability to perform activities of daily living.

Findings: Both CT and x-ray show a calcified mass posterior to the acetabulum and femur.

Ddx: Heterotopic ossification Soft-tissue neoplasm Bone neoplasm

Dxhow: Surgery

Exam: The patient was found to have an antalgic gait. He had no neurologic symptoms and had limited mobility secondary to a mass on his right hip. His right hip range of motion was from 90 degrees of flexion to 7 degrees of flexion. His external rotation was approximately 15 degrees, and internal rotation was 30 degrees.

No MeSH data available.
