300 Possible Causes for Bony Swelling, Meningitis

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Trauma, new bony pain, or change in bony pain warrants repeat imaging with X-rays.[] Further investigation with a lumbar puncture confirmed the diagnosis of streptococcal meningitis.[] Here, we present a case of a patient with multiple myeloma lesions situated adjacent to the meninges and intraparenchymally.[]

  • Fracture

    For delayed hypoglossal nerve paralysis due to swelling within the canal, methylprednisolone was started, and a complete cure was attained in about 10 days.[] With an open skull fracture, the scalp is lacerated and the wound may connect with the fibrous coverings of the brain (meninges).[] There will be considerable swelling and bruising. What is a Pott's fracture?[]

  • Hematoma

    For IDH, wide inner membranectomy (i.e., excision of meningeal dura mater) should not be necessary.[] The dura mater is the outermost layer of the meninges. The meninges is the three-layer protective covering of the brain.[] The brain is protected by 3 thin layers of tissue called the meninges which covers the brain and spinal cord.[]

  • Chondroma

    On palpation, there was a 3.5cm x 2cm nontender, firm, bony hard swelling with well defined margins in the proximal fourth of medial thigh.[] Meningeal chondroma is a rare intracranial neoplasm. It is usually diagnosed clinically as meningioma.[] The larger exophytic component consists of a bony protuberance with adjacent soft tissue swelling (arrowhead in b).[]

  • Osteoma

    […] hard swellings on forehead Gross description Sessile, polypoid shape Median size 3.0 cm (range 0.5 - 8 cm) Smooth, bosselated surface Cut surface with dense compact bone[] This represents the fourth reported case of frontal sinus osteoma associated with meningitis.[] It was about 1 x 1 cm, smooth, bony hard, non-tender swelling fixed to underlying bone.[]

  • Osteomyelitis

    The physical examination should focus on identifying common findings, such as erythema, soft tissue swelling or joint effusion, decreased joint range of motion, and bony tenderness[] KEYWORDS: Yersinia pestis; meningitis; multifocal osteomyelitis; plague osteomyelitis; plague septicemia[] Check the neck for signs of meningism. Listen to the lungs and heart for signs of pneumonia or a pericardial friction rub.[]

  • Secondary Syphilis of the Skin

    The clinical options for early neurosyphilis are as follows: latent meningitis; clinically acute meningitis; basal meningitis; hydrocephalus (chronic and acute); meningomyelitis[] Secondary syphilis of skin and mucous membranes A51.32 Syphilitic alopecia A51.39 Other secondary syphilis of skin A51.4 Other secondary syphilis A51.41 Secondary syphilitic meningitis[] A few meningeal infections heal spontaneously, but most remain asymptomatic (latent) for years before some are reactivated during tertiary meningeal syphilis.[]

  • Acromegaly

    […] of the bony areas around a joint Large bones of the face, large jaw and tongue, widely spaced teeth Large feet (change in shoe size), large hands (change in ring or glove[] Apoplexy can mimic viral or bacterial meningitis, but meningitis might cause apoplexy, as well.[] […] of the bony areas around a joint Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease: Weight gain (unintentional) Hair, excessive on females Signs and tests: The[]

  • Chondrosarcoma

    Symptoms of chondrosarcoma are generally limited to the affected area and include the following: A bony lump or mass Tenderness or stiffness Pain or swelling, especially at[] Approximately, a third of these tumors develop in extraskeletal sites such as the meninges, and somatic soft tissue.[] […] performed, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish intracranial chondrosarcoma from meningioma and glioma, especially when the tumor arises from a nonskull base such as the meninges[]

  • Lipoma

    Fibrosarcoma More chance of Hematoma devpg liposarcomaParosteal Feels hard Bony tumor Very, very rare 6.[] Lipoma of the corpus callosum is a congenital disorder which probably arises due to poor differentiation of the meningeal tissue.[] In scalp- erodes edge & lobulation dermoid , bone TbtenosynovitisSubsynovial, Knee/elbow Bursa, Intra-articular is sweling Baker’s cyst rareintra-articularIntermuscular Swelling[]
