ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: History, clinical course, and imaging findings compatible with tennis leg.

History: 49 year old male with a two-month history of left calf pain and swelling.

Findings: MRI demonstrates a heterogenous fluid collection(dark on T1/bright on T2)1.5cm AP x 18cm long x 4.7cm trv between the proximal soleus and medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle. Within the collection, there is decreased signal on T2 suggesting hemosiderin deposition due to hemmorhage. Ultrasound was negative for deep venous thrombosis but notable for a Baker cyst.

Ddx: >>Hematoma >>Complex Seroma >>Ruptured Baker cyst

Dxhow: History, clinical course, and imaging findings.

Exam: Tender, swollen calf without a discrete palpable mass. ESR, CRP, CBC, and Chem-12 were normal.

No MeSH data available.


Large fluid collection between the medial head of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, within which is bright T1 signal consistent with methemoglobin.
