Kanthimathi B, Udhaya Shankar S, Arun Kumar K, Narayanan VL - Clin Orthop Surg (2014)

Bottom Line: Histopathology revealed lamellar bone.The 2-year follow-up showed full function of the affected limb and no signs of recurrence.We report this case of clinical interest due to the unusually large myositic mass.

ABSTRACT
Myositis ossificans traumatica is an unusual complication following a muscle contusion injury. A significantly large myositic mass causing ankylosis of the elbow is even rarer. We report a 13-year-old boy who presented with a 14-month history of a fixed elbow with no movement and a palpable bony mass in the anterior aspect of the elbow. He had sustained significant trauma to the affected limb 1 month prior to onset of symptoms, which was managed by native massage and bandaging for 4 weeks. The clinicoradiological diagnosis was suggestive of myositis ossificans, and the myositic mass was completely excised. Histopathology revealed lamellar bone. The 2-year follow-up showed full function of the affected limb and no signs of recurrence. We report this case of clinical interest due to the unusually large myositic mass.

Figure 5: Radiograph at the final follow-up.

Mentions: The patient regained full function of the affected elbow and returned to school in 10 weeks. He scored the maximum of 100 on the Mayo Elbow Scoring System, which was attributed to full functional status. The patient had the best possible functional status after 2 years. No signs of clinical or radiographic recurrence were detected (Fig. 5).
