We describe the case of a 37-year-old man with a 20-year history of psoriatic arthritis. The patient presented with abdominal pain, watery diarrhea with mild hematochezia, and a reported 24-pound unintentional weight loss over the past five months. Of note, the patient began treatment with etanercept five months earlier after discontinuation of infliximab for his psoriatic arthritis symptoms. Colonoscopy with terminal ileum intubation revealed active colitis and intestinal biopsy results showed marked ulcerations and non-caseating granulomas, indicative of CD. Etanercept was subsequently discontinued and the patient was st...

We describe an unusual case of high-grade myxofibrosarcoma of the wrist and forearm that infiltrated the muscles, tendons, and wrist joint, causing bone erosions. The tumor was mistakenly diagnosed as synovitis and a chronic, erosive, inflammatory process. The diffuse nature, absence of a dominant mass, and radiographic appearance complicated the diagnosis. Although neoplasms of the synovial spaces are rare, this case demonstrates that tumors with a highly infiltrative growth pattern can mimic inflammatory synovitis and that neoplasms should be considered in the differential diagnosis when clinical and laboratory features ...

AbstractRetro-odontoid pseudotumor, or mass-like retro-odontoid soft tissue thickening, is an uncommon but important imaging finding that may be associated with rheumatoid arthritis, crystal deposition diseases, as well as non-inflammatory conditions such as cervical degenerative changes and mechanical alterations. Retro-odontoid pseudotumor is commonly associated with atlantoaxial microinstability or subluxation. MRI and CT have an important role in the detection and diagnosis of retro-odontoid pseudotumor. However, due to a wide range of imaging characteristics and ambiguous etiology, it is a frequently misunderstood ent...

AbstractIntroductionThe use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty has increased for the management of cuff-deficient glenohumeral joint arthritis and fractures. With bone preservation being a major target in reverse shoulder arthroplasty, metaphyseal humeral components without a stem were developed. The aim of this study is to present the survivorship, functional and radiological outcomes of a novel short metaphyseal prosthesis without a diaphyseal stem from an independent centre.MethodsClinical function and radiological features of patients undergoing stemless reverse shoulder arthroplasty were prospectively recorded. Pa...
