Bone involvement is an unusual manifestation of secondary syphilis, but little information is available in the English-language literature. We carried out a systematic review of the English-language literature from 1964 to 2013, describing cases of secondary syphilis with bone involvement. We also describe a case of secondary syphilis with multiple(More)
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively analyze magnetic resonance (MR) findings in patients with popliteal arterial entrapment syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was a retrospective MRI and CT scan review of 12 patients with 23 limbs with popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) treated over a 10-yr period. All 12 patients (23 limbs) were evaluated with(More)
OBJECTIVE We wanted to compare the two-dimensional (2D) fast spin echo (FSE) techniques and the three-dimensional (3D) fast field echo techniques for the evaluation of the chondromalacia patella using a microscopy coil. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty five patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty were included in this study. Preoperative MRI evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVE We wished to report on the MRI findings of non-infectious ischiogluteal bursitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The MRI findings of 17 confirmed cases of non-infectious ischiogluteal bursitis were analyzed: four out of the 17 cases were confirmed with surgery, and the remaining 13 cases were confirmed with MRI plus the clinical data. RESULTS The(More)
Lipoma arborescens is a rare benign intra-articular lesion that principally affects the knee joint. We present a case of lipoma arborescens involving the glenohumeral joint and associated with prominent large bony erosions. The gadolinium diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of this lesion are also(More)
UNLABELLED We compared the diagnostic sensitivity of (99m)Tc-methylene diphosphonate bone SPECT and MRI in the early detection of femoral head osteonecrosis after renal transplantation. METHODS The patients were 24 renal allograft recipients who underwent both bone SPECT and MRI within 1 mo of each other because of hip pain but normal findings on plain(More)
Marfan syndrome is an inherited multisystemic connective-tissue disease that is caused by a mutation of the fibrillin-1 gene. The syndrome is characterized by a wide range of clinical manifestations. Common cardiovascular manifestations, most of which are substantial contributors to mortality, include annuloaortic ectasia with or without aortic valve(More)
We present a case of a subcutaneous encapsulated fat necrosis of the upper extremity that mimicked subcutaneous liposarcoma because of heterogeneous signal intensity, its relatively large size, and pronounced enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For this case, we present the radiologic findings including MRI, positron emission(More)
The present study describes the use of the "moving-shot" technique for successful radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of malignant musculoskeletal soft-tissue tumors. Ultrasonography-guided RFA was performed in 6 malignant soft-tissue tumors in 5 patients. Short-term follow-up after RFA (8-27 weeks) showed that complete necrosis was achieved in all lesions, and 5(More)
BACKGROUND Non-ionic radiocontrast media (RCM) is rarely associated with hypersensitivity reactions. Premedication of patients who reacted previously to RCM with systemic corticosteroids and/or antihistamines can help reduce recurrent hypersensitivity reactions. However, premedication is still not prescribed in many cases for various reasons. This study(More)
