Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlmn / M / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O difficulty in squatting position due to pain in the right groin region since 1 year.
M.R.I of both hips was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
5 mm thick Proton density sagittal images.
There is seen a well-marginated approximately 1.2 cms diameter sized hypointense lesion on the T1 Weighted images at the base of the greater trochanter of the left femur. This lesion appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images with a few hypointensities within it. No perilesional bone edema is noted.
The femoral head and the acetabulum reveal normal signal intensity bilaterally. The articular cartilages are unremarkable. There is no effusion within both the hip joints.
The musculature surrounding both the hip joints and the visualized pelvis is unremarkable.
An approximately 1.2 cms diameter sized lesion at the base of the greater trochanter of the left femur as described is not specific for a single etiology. An enchondroma should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
