ConclusionsPosterior vertebral endplate fracture should be considered in differential diagnosis of a youth or young adult with back pain, radiating leg pain, and limited knee extension, regardless of symptom onset. We recommend consultation with an experienced physician whose practice specializes in spine medicine for patients in whom conservative management fails.

ConclusionProximal IFP extensions are a novel description. The IFP is a dynamic structure, displacing significantly during knee motion, which is, therefore, vulnerable to interference from trauma or repetitive overload. Given that this trauma is often surgical, it may be appropriate that surgeons learn to minimize injury to the fat pad at surgery.

Abstract Knee pain affects approximately 25% of adults, and its prevalence has increased almost 65% over the past 20 years, accounting for nearly 4 million primary care visits annually. Initial evaluation should emphasize excluding urgent causes while considering the need for referral. Key aspects of the patient history include age; location, onset, duration, and quality of pain; associated mechanical or systemic symptoms; history of swelling; description of precipitating trauma; and pertinent medical or surgical history. Patients requiring urgent referral generally have severe pain, swelling, and instability or i...

Authors: Dehnokhalaji M, Golbakhsh MR, Siavashi B, Talebian P, Javidmehr S, Bozorgmanesh M Abstract Study Design: Retrospective study. Purpose: Lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration is an important cause of low back pain. Overview of Literature: Spinal fusion is often reported to have a good course for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). However, many studies have reported that adjacent segment degeneration is accelerated after lumbar spinal fusion. Radiography is a simple method used to evaluate the orientation of the vertebral column. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the method most often used to ...

We present the case of a patient with colic pain in the epigastrium and right hypochondrium, which was accompanied by choluria and acholia and slightly elevated levels of bilirubin and eosinophilia. Abdominal echography and magnetic resonance imaging identified a biliary obstruction and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography was used to extract 3 adult worms identified as Fasciola hepatica. This case highlights the need to consider the suspicion of biliary obstruction caused by Fasciola hepatica in the presence of obstructive jaundice, with or without eosinophilia.

We describe a case of Ewing sarcoma in the metacarpal of a 5-month-old male. After pain, erythema, and swelling of the hand failed to resolve with antibiotics, radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging raised suspicion for a neoplastic condition. Open biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma and treatment with chemotherapy and surgical resection was initiated. Ewing sarcoma of the hand in a patient this young is an exceedingly rare diagnosis, which highlights the importance of a broad differential diagnosis when the treatments for more common conditions fail.
