Morel-Lavallée lesion: A closed degloving injury that requires real attention.

Nair AV, Nazar P, Sekhar R, Ramachandran P, Moorthy S - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2014)

Bottom Line: Morel-Lavallée lesions are post-traumatic, closed degloving injuries occurring deep to subcutaneous plane due to disruption of capillaries resulting in an effusion containing hemolymph and necrotic fat.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice in the evaluation of Morel-Lavallée lesion.Early diagnosis and management is essential as any delay in diagnosis or missed lesion will lead to the effusion becoming infected or leading to extensive skin necrosis.

Figure 1: USG scan of fluctuant swelling in left anterolateral thigh showing, (a) large complex septated (arrow head) fluid collection within deep subcutaneous tissues; (b and c) fluid collection with internal echoes; (d) no evidence of vascularity

Mentions: Ultrasound (USG) of the fluctuant swelling in the left thigh showed a large complex septated fluid collection in the deep subcutaneous plane with internal echoes extending upto the knee [Figure 1].
