37 Possible Causes for Bony Swelling, Hypermetabolism

  • Multiple Myeloma

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

  • 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[] On palpation, enlarged maxilla was bony hard and nontender. Rise in temperature over the swelling was felt, but overlying skin and mucosa appeared normal.[]

  • 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.[] Growth in height may be enhanced by hypermetabolism, and bone age may be advanced. [3] Puberty may be affected.[] The hypermetabolic state is characterized by fast pulse/heartbeat, palpitations, profuse sweating, high blood pressure, irritability, fatigue, weight loss, heat intolerance[]

  • 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.[] CONCLUSION: Temporal bone chondroblastoma usually forms as an expansile, heterogeneous, hypermetabolic mass in the middle cranial fossa, frequently with low signal intensity[] swelling with no aural symptoms.[]

  • 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[] Complications like cardiac arrhythmias, hypermetabolism, hyperpyrexia, thyroid storm and myocardial infarction have been reported in TF.[] Hyperthyroidism is one cause of thyrotoxicosis—the hypermetabolic clinical syndrome which occurs when there are elevated serum levels of T3 and/or T4.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

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

  • 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).[]

  • 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[] Definition (NCI) A hypermetabolic syndrome caused by the elevation of thyroid hormone levels in the serum.[] Thyrotoxicosis is a hypermetabolic clinical syndrome caused by a pathological excess of circulating free T4 (thyroxine) and/or free T3 (tri-iodothyronine).[]

  • Chondromyxoid Fibroma

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

  • Metastasis

    Positron emission tomography and computed tomography revealed hypermetabolic, lobulated mass in left hemi-thyroid, displacing trachea, and hypermetabolic lymph nodes on the[] 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[] Subsequently, a full-body positron emission tomography contrast enhanced computer tomography revealed hypermetabolic lesions of her axial (excluding skull) and appendicular[]
