An Unusual Association: Iliopsoas Bursitis Related to Calcium Pyrophosphate Crystal Arthritis.

Di Carlo M, Draghessi A, Carotti M, Salaffi F - Case Rep Rheumatol (2015)

Bottom Line: A 71-year-old man with osteoarthritis and chondrocalcinosis came to our observation developing a swelling in the groin region after a recent left colectomy for adenocarcinoma.The imaging techniques revealed the presence of an iliopsoas bursitis in connection with the hip.The synovial fluid analysis detected the presence of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystals and allowed the final and unusual diagnosis of iliopsoas bursitis related to acute CPP crystal hip arthritis.

ABSTRACT
A 71-year-old man with osteoarthritis and chondrocalcinosis came to our observation developing a swelling in the groin region after a recent left colectomy for adenocarcinoma. The imaging techniques revealed the presence of an iliopsoas bursitis in connection with the hip. The synovial fluid analysis detected the presence of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystals and allowed the final and unusual diagnosis of iliopsoas bursitis related to acute CPP crystal hip arthritis.

Mentions: A 71-year-old Caucasian man, with a history of osteoarthritis and knee chondrocalcinosis (Figure 1), never complicated with acute arthritis, arrived to our department for a recent onset of pain at right hip accompanied by homolateral swelling in the groin region. Two months earlier, he underwent surgery (left colectomy) for colic adenocarcinoma. The pain arose rapidly within two weeks and was determining a severe functional impotence of lower right limb. The clinical picture was completed by the presence of a low-grade fever (not higher than 37.2°C).
