300 Possible Causes for Bony Swelling, Meningitis

  • Multiple Myeloma

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

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With an open skull fracture, the scalp is lacerated and the wound may connect with the fibrous coverings of the brain (meninges).[medicinenet.com] There will be considerable swelling and bruising. What is a Pott's fracture?[sportsinjuryclinic.net]

  • Hematoma

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

  • 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.[ijri.org] Meningeal chondroma is a rare intracranial neoplasm. It is usually diagnosed clinically as meningioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The larger exophytic component consists of a bony protuberance with adjacent soft tissue swelling (arrowhead in b).[jbsr.be]

  • 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[pathologyoutlines.com] This represents the fourth reported case of frontal sinus osteoma associated with meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It was about 1 x 1 cm, smooth, bony hard, non-tender swelling fixed to underlying bone.[ispub.com]

  • 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[aafp.org] KEYWORDS: Yersinia pestis; meningitis; multifocal osteomyelitis; plague osteomyelitis; plague septicemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Check the neck for signs of meningism. Listen to the lungs and heart for signs of pneumonia or a pericardial friction rub.[www0.sun.ac.za]

  • 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[en.medicine-worlds.com] 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[icd10data.com] A few meningeal infections heal spontaneously, but most remain asymptomatic (latent) for years before some are reactivated during tertiary meningeal syphilis.[histopathology-india.net]

  • 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[nlm.nih.gov] Apoplexy can mimic viral or bacterial meningitis, but meningitis might cause apoplexy, as well.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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[uclahealth.org]

  • 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[stjude.org] Approximately, a third of these tumors develop in extraskeletal sites such as the meninges, and somatic soft tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lipoma

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