ConclusionsIn all probability, the left knee reflects a case of congenital ankylosis with a differential diagnosis of subadult trauma. The female’s skeleton had adapted to the impairment. Their risk is likely to have been elevated because of climatic and pandemic events during this period.SignificanceFirst reported case of congenital knee ankylosis.LimitationsThe left knee joint was damaged during excavation.Suggestions for further researchAdditional imaging is advised.

Additional tools for risk-stratification of chronic graft vs. host disease (cGVHD) may enhance the established NIH consensus-based severity score. Radiographic body composition metrics arising from standardly performed CT-scans have previously shown significant association with treatment complications in other cancer populations. We aimed to characterize skeletal muscle (SM) and adiposity in cGVHD patients to discern potential association with subsequent mortality.

This study sought to characterize the intra- and extra-articular features of naturally occurring TMJ ankylosis in cats. TMJs from client-owned cats (n = 5) that underwent bilateral TMJ gap arthroplasty were examined and compared with TMJs from healthy, age-matched feline cadavers (n = 2) by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), micro-computed tomography (μCT) and histologically. Features of bilateral intra- and extra-articular ankylosis compounded by degenerative joint lesions were identified radiographically and histologically in all affected cats. Features of TMJ ‘true’ ankylosis includ...

ConclusionsScurvy is caused by vitamin C deficiency. Cutaneous bleeding, mucosal bleeding, and anemia represent typical manifestations of the disease. These symptoms are directly connected to ascorbic acid involvement in collagen biosynthesis. Some radiographic findings can be useful for the diagnosis. Treatment aims to normalize serum levels of vitamin C in order to counteract the deprivation symptoms. The present case report demonstrates that scurvy may sporadically occur in pediatric patients, even in individuals with no predisposing medical conditions and/or potential risk factors.
