37 Possible Causes for Bony Swelling, Hypermetabolism

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Trauma, new bony pain, or change in bony pain warrants repeat imaging with X-rays.[clinicaladvisor.com] PET/CT findings presented as a pattern of skeletal "superscan," including diffuse and prominent hypermetabolism throughout the axial and proximal appendicular skeleton, which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Asymmetric or symmetric lower extremity swelling warrants venous duplex to rule out venous thrombosis. F.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Osteitis Deformans

    May have gross bony deformity; may be only physical finding Rapid onset of pain and swelling suggests malignant degeneration (rare; less than 1% chance of malignant degeneration[orthopaedicsone.com] On palpation, enlarged maxilla was bony hard and nontender. Rise in temperature over the swelling was felt, but overlying skin and mucosa appeared normal.[amsjournal.com]

  • Graves Disease

    Because of the orbits—the bony parts of your face that help hold your eyes in place—the swollen muscles and tissues are pushed outward.[endocrineweb.com] Growth in height may be enhanced by hypermetabolism, and bone age may be advanced. [3] Puberty may be affected.[emedicine.com] The hypermetabolic state is characterized by fast pulse/heartbeat, palpitations, profuse sweating, high blood pressure, irritability, fatigue, weight loss, heat intolerance[umkelloggeye.org]

  • Chondroblastoma

    A non-tender, bony hard swelling was palpable in the left temporal region with intact skin over it. There was no bruit. There was no regional lymph node enlargement.[neurologyindia.com] CONCLUSION: Temporal bone chondroblastoma usually forms as an expansile, heterogeneous, hypermetabolic mass in the middle cranial fossa, frequently with low signal intensity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] swelling with no aural symptoms.[neurologyindia.com]

  • Thyrotoxicosis Factitia

    Graves' ophthalmopathy is characterized chiefly by periorbital edema and proptosis (forward displacement of the globe due to swelling of extraocular muscles in the bony orbit[ocw.tufts.edu] Complications like cardiac arrhythmias, hypermetabolism, hyperpyrexia, thyroid storm and myocardial infarction have been reported in TF.[symptoma.com] Hyperthyroidism is one cause of thyrotoxicosis—the hypermetabolic clinical syndrome which occurs when there are elevated serum levels of T3 and/or T4.[educalingo.com]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    Finger swelling is a rare presenting sign of disseminated tuberculosis.[ann-clinmicrob.biomedcentral.com] Splenomegaly showed multiple hypermetabolic nodules, and hypermetabolic focal lesions in the C3, C4, and D8 vertebral bodies, and the fourth costal arch.[revistanefrologia.com] This case illustrates the importance of a high index of suspicion when evaluating a patient with an unusual destructive bony lesion.[ann-clinmicrob.biomedcentral.com]

  • Scurvy

    Vitamin C requirements are likely to be increased in this population due to the hypermetabolic response driven by the systemic inflammatory reaction (152, 153).[lpi.oregonstate.edu]

  • T3 Thyrotoxicosis

    Graves' ophthalmopathy is characterized chiefly by periorbital edema and proptosis (forward displacement of the globe due to swelling of extraocular muscles in the bony orbit[ocw.tufts.edu] Definition (NCI) A hypermetabolic syndrome caused by the elevation of thyroid hormone levels in the serum.[fpnotebook.com] Thyrotoxicosis is a hypermetabolic clinical syndrome caused by a pathological excess of circulating free T4 (thyroxine) and/or free T3 (tri-iodothyronine).[radiopaedia.org]

  • Chondromyxoid Fibroma

    A 45-year-old female was admitted with painless bony swelling in the forehead.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequent positron emission tomography/computed tomography identified erosive bony changes associated with hypermetabolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Typically people present with progressive pain, often long standing and/or bony swelling and restricted range of movement in affected limb 3,12.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Metastasis

    Positron emission tomography and computed tomography revealed hypermetabolic, lobulated mass in left hemi-thyroid, displacing trachea, and hypermetabolic lymph nodes on the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A PET/CT scan demonstrated hypermetabolism in the left breast and atypical heterogeneously increased uptake throughout the skeleton as well as a minimally FDG-avid right adrenal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequently, a full-body positron emission tomography contrast enhanced computer tomography revealed hypermetabolic lesions of her axial (excluding skull) and appendicular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
