ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Myositis ossificans

History: This 37-year-old woman with diagnosed autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease for 10 years, has progressed to end stage renal disease and required a renal transplant. While recovering from surgery and on immunosuppression, she sustained a left hip fracture. The fracture was reduced and pinned and a fibular graft was placed. Radiographs after surgery and 3 weeks postoperatively when the patient had complaints of left "hip" swelling and pain, along with mild erythema.

Findings: Initial A-P radiograph of the left hip shows pinning of the left femoral fracture and indistinct flocculent calcifications in the lateral quadriceps musculature. A-P radiograph of the left hip three weeks later shows that the ossifications in the lateral quadriceps musculature is better defined.

Ddx: Myositis ossificans Extraskeletal chondrosarcoma or osteosarcoma Pseudomalignant osseous tumor of soft tissue Soft tissue sarcoma such as MFH (before maturation of myositis ossificans)
