ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Achilles tendon tear

History: 70 y/o male who felt a “pop” two days prior to presentation and has had pain in region of right Achilles tendon since that time.

Findings: MRI: Proton density without fat sat axial shows medium signal intensity in the region of the Achilles tendon and fat obliteration This medium signal intensity becomes high signal intensity on T2 weighted with fat sat, with extensive edema medial, lateral, and posterior to the tendon T1 weighted sagittal reveals complete disruption approximately 5cm above the insertion site into the calcaneus. This disruption approximately 4cm proximally. Sonography: longitudinal image on sonogram in region of Achilles tendon demonstrating heterogeneous echotexture with posttraumatic inflammation and hemorrhage.

Ddx: Complete Achilles tendon tear

Exam: Tenderness to palpation in posterior aspect of right ankle
