Myositis Ossificans Heterotopic Bone Formation

Heterotopic Bone Formation

Fig. 8.81 There is overshooting calcification or ossification of the soft tissues after a severe shoulder injury, often transforming a hematoma—myositis ossificans. The range of motion in this joint is naturally very limited. The patient also suffered a heavy brain injury and stayed in coma for three weeks. Comatose patients tend to develop particularly large areas of heterotopic bone formation.

I Synovial Hemangioma

Plantar/palmar fibromatosis: The plantar or palmar fibromatosis (better remembered as Ledderhose disease and Dupuytren disease, respectively) are nodular lesions of the fascia of foot and hand.

• Diagnosis: Joey could not really get much more information out of the images. But he has got good news for Mr. Schwortenbakker. His tumor is definitely a lipoma, which can easily be resected by his plastic surgeon. Had the lesion fulfilled the above criteria of malignancy, Joey could have determined the most likely histological diagnosis by taking into account the age of the patient and the localization of the tumor. It would have earned him the special respect of the clinical colleagues.
