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.

Mentions: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of left anterolateral thigh showed a well-defined crescentic collection extending along superficial fascia overlying the muscle plane, appearing hypointense with hyperintense (fat) strands on T1-weighted (T1W) images and hyperintense on T2-weighted (T2W) images [Figure 3].
