23 Possible Causes for Bony Swelling, Patient Appears Chronically Ill

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Trauma, new bony pain, or change in bony pain warrants repeat imaging with X-rays.[] Asymmetric or symmetric lower extremity swelling warrants venous duplex to rule out venous thrombosis. F.[]

  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    Taxotere plus Gemzar is an Effective Regimen for Advanced Soft-Tissue Sarcomas Researchers from France have reported that the combination of Taxotere (docetaxel) and Gemzar (gemcitabine) may improve outcomes of patients with locally unresectable or metastatic soft-tissue sarcoma (STS). Soft tissue sarcomas[…][]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    This can cause swelling and the formation of bony spurs, called osteophytes.[] Patients with rheumatoid arthritis appear undernourished and chronically ill. Most are anemic because of the effect of the disease on blood-forming organs.[] Basic radiographic changes in JIA include the following: Soft tissue swelling Osteopenia or osteoporosis Joint-space narrowing Bony erosions Intra-articular bony ankylosis[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The joints are soft and boggy, quite different from the square, hard, bony swelling of osteoarthritis (OA).[] Rheumatoid arthritis (ra) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function in your joints.[] Careful palpation of the joints can help to distinguish the swelling of joint inflammation from the bony enlargement seen in osteoarthritis, with the swelling often described[]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    However, it can later develop into a bony growth known as Heberdens or Bouchards nodes.[] Patients with rheumatoid arthritis appear undernourished and chronically ill. Most are anemic because of the effect of the disease on blood-forming organs.[] Radiograph views of the fourth finger show diffuse soft tissue swelling.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Dactylitis similar to that seen in psoriatic arthritis, that is associated with pain, swelling, overlying skin erythema, and underlying bony changes may also occur.[]

  • Brodie Abscess

    swelling with little restrictive movements.[] The first case he described, a 24-year old male, had suffered half his life with bouts of severe pain originating from a bony swelling above the right ankle.[] […] operation, patient was readmitted to the hospital with complaints of pus draining from a newly formed sinus on lateral part of the heel, with severe pain, and a diffuse bony[]

  • Metastasis

    Abstract Recent technological advances that have enabled the measurement of circulating tumour cells (CTCs) in patients have spurred interest in the circulatory phase of metastasis. Techniques that do not solely rely on a blood sample allow substantial biological interrogation beyond simply counting CTCs. Access[…][]

  • Chronic Pyogenic Osteomyelitis

    Radiographs may be normal or show fluid or soft tissue swelling or increased joint space. Bony changes may not be apparent for 2-3 weeks.[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Radiologically,mass formation, orbital bony destruction, and spread of disease to contiguous structures including the central nervous system may be seen.[] A patient may present with fever, headache, nausea, vomiting,decreased vision, ocular pain, and, in cases of mass formation, there is periorbital swelling, axial proptosis[]
