Lumbar Intraspinal Spindle Cell Rhabdomyosarcoma as a Rare Cause of Spinal Stenosis: A Case Report
Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) represents the most common sarcoma in childhood yet is extremely rare in adults, with only a handful of cases reported. Here we present a case of intraspinal spindle cell RMS in an adult who presented as a typical case of spinal stenosis. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of lumbar intraspinal spindle cell RMS in an adult patient. Furthermore, RMS phenotypically presents more aggressively in adults compared with children. (Source: PM and R)

Development and persistence of suspected neuropathic pain after total knee arthroplasty in individuals with osteoarthritis
Despite the effectiveness of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for osteoarthritis (OA), up to 20% will report knee pain 1-year after surgery. One possible reason is the development of neuropathic pain before or after TKA. (Source: PM and R)

Ultrasound-Guided Percutaneous Needle Tenotomy for Chronic Tensor Fascia Lata Tendinopathy: A Case Series and Description of Sonographic Findings
Proximal tensor fascia lata tendinopathy at its origin on the anterior superior iliac crest is one potential cause of lateral hip pain. However, there is limited literature regarding the mechanism, disease course, or management of this condition. There is growing evidence supporting the effective treatment of percutaneous needle tenotomy (PNT) for chronic tendinopathy. Only a single case series has examined the efficacy of PNT for tendinopathy about the hip and pelvis. Presented here are examples of 2 cases of chronic recalcitrant proximal ultrasound confirmed tensor fascia lata (tendinopathy effectively treated with ultra...

Imaging of Spondylolysis: The Evolving Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The pars interarticularis is a small but important component of the posterior element structures located at the junction of the pedicle, lamina, and inferior and superior articular facet (Figure  1). This structure is subject to a significant amount of force that is transmitted from the vertically oriented lamina to the horizontally oriented pedicle [1-3]. (Source: PM and R)

Rehabilitation Course and Specification of Dysmetria of a Patient With Ataxia, Dysmetria, and Hemiparesis After a Stroke in the Corona Radiata: A Case Presentation
We present a case of a patient with ataxia, dysmetria, and hemiparesis after a stroke in the corona radiata. The patient had an excellent clinical course with near resolution of symptoms in 2 and a half weeks and returned and back to work full duty and full time a couple of weeks later. We use a video of several neurologic tests to demonstrate and characterize the dysmetria. Interestingly, a key characteristic of the dysmetria appears to be different from that seen in patients with dysmetria arising from a cerebellar, thalamic, or pontine lesion. (Source: PM and R)

Efficacy of Injected Corticosteroid Type, Dose, and Volume for Pain in Large Joints: A Narrative Review
Cortisone and its derivatives are glucocorticoids, steroid hormones that affect inflammation and glucose metabolism. Corticosteroids readily cross cell membranes and enter the cytoplasm, where they bind glucocorticoid receptors [1]. This interaction causes the complex to translocate to the nucleus, where it binds to DNA at specific promoter sequences. By regulating the transcription of 10-100 genes, corticosteroids can inhibit prostaglandin and collagen synthesis, decrease the circulation of leukocytes in inflamed tissues, and inhibit edema by decreasing capillary permeability [1].

Exercise Prescription Using a Group-Normalized Rating of Perceived Exertion in Adolescents and Adults With Spina Bifida
People with spina bifida (SB) face personal and environmental barriers to exercise that contribute to physical inactivity, obesity, risk of cardiovascular disease, and poor aerobic fitness. The WHEEL rating of perceived exertion (RPE) Scale was validated in people with SB to monitor exercise intensity. However, the psycho-physiological link between RPE and ventilatory breakpoint (Vpt), the group-normalized perceptual response, has not been determined and would provide a starting point for aerobic exercise in this cohort.

A Tale of Two Cities: Evolution of Academic Physiatry in Boston and Baltimore: Part 1: The Boston Marathon
Today, a physiatrist boarding a train at Boston ’s South Station bound for Union Station in Washington, DC, could count 19 academic institutions with physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) departments and residency programs along the way. That number represents approximately one quarter of academic PM&R departments for the entire United States. Almost all of these are located in institutions in the 4 major urban centers along Amtrak ’s Northeast Corridor—Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. (Source: PM and R)

The Role of Rehabilitation in Patients With Progressive Supranuclear Palsy: A Narrative Review
Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by the deposition of abnormal proteins in neurons of the basal ganglia that limit motor ability, resulting in disability and reduced quality of life. So far, no pharmacologic therapy has been developed, and the treatment remains symptomatic. The aim of the present study is to perform a systematic investigation of the literature, and to determine the types and effects of rehabilitative interventions used for PSP. (Source: PM and R)

Proximal Linear Extension of Skin Hypopigmentation After Ultrasound-Guided Corticosteroid Injection for de Quervain Tenosynovitis: A Case Presentation
de Quervain tenosynovitis is a stenosing tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist that can lead to painful functional impairment of the upper limb. This case presentation describes a rare adverse effect of corticosteroid injection, involving local skin atrophy and hypopigmentation with proximal linear extension.

Re: Characteristics of a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Sample Recruited Using Amazon ’s Mechanical Turk
As Mr Bernstein and Dr Calamia note in their recent article, “Characteristics of a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Sample Recruited Using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk,” Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is an increasingly popular platform for recruiting research participants in the behavioral and health sciences [1]. We agree that MTurk provides efficient a nd low-cost access to high-quality data. However, researchers must also navigate important drawbacks to effectively use this platform. We use Bernstein and Calamia’s study to highlight some of these drawbacks and offer strategies...

We present a case of a 13-year-old female patient who presented with sudden-onset progressive hemiplegia and hemianopsia. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed tumefactive demyelination with partial rim of enhancement. During inpatient rehabilitation, she developed myalgias, rash, and abdominal and mouth pain with evidence for severe neutropenia. The neutropenia was determined to be a secondary complication of the tumefactive disease process. (Source: PM and R)

Chronic Thigh Pain in a Young Adult Diagnosed as Synovial Sarcoma: A Case Report
Synovial sarcoma is a slow-growing, intermediate- to high-grade neoplasm with extensive metastatic potential. Accurate diagnosis of synovial sarcoma may pose a challenge to providers because of its indolent growth and variable presentation. The findings of a soft-tissue, periarticular mass with calcifications in a young patient are highly suggestive of synovial sarcoma. Although different imaging modalities can aid in the diagnosis of synovial sarcoma, diagnostic certainty is typically only confirmed by biopsy and histologic analysis. (Source: PM and R)
