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)

Exam: not available

No MeSH data available.


When the films from 1July and 22 July are compared, one can see diffuse calcification in the lateral quadriceps area that has increased in opacity.
