237 Possible Causes for Joint Effusion, Progressive Contractures

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com] Abstract Point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound can provide information about joint effusions and the quality of the effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On October 25, the patient had a high fever, swelling, and pain in the large joints of the limbs, and joint effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[oafifoundation.com] A joint effusion is the presence of increased intra-articular fluid. [1] It may affect any joint. Commonly it involves the knee.[en.wikipedia.org] This limitation is mainly related to the blocking of voluntary muscle functioning and the reflex contracture.[physio-pedia.com]

  • Polyarthritis

    The characteristic rapid progression of palmar contracture is a key finding that suggests the potential existence of a malignancy. [Indexed for MEDLINE] Free full text[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Frequent complaints are: Tenderness Arthralgia Joint swelling Joint effusion Joint deformity Stiffness Reduced motion range Crepitation Affected joints may be in close proximity[symptoma.com] […] to flexion contracture of the hands.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudogout

    Signs: Pseudo-Rheumatoid (5% of CPPD Deposition Disease) Symmetric Polyarthritis with low grade inflammation Synovial thickening Flexion contractures Morning Stiffness Fatigue[fpnotebook.com] An axial magnetic resonance imaging scan demonstrated joint effusion at the level of the bilateral L4-L5 facet joint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspiration of the joint effusion had not been effective.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Erosion of the articular cartilage, together with ligamentous changes, result in deformity and contractures. As the disease progresses, pain and deformity increase.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] […] space, compared with osteoarthritis (OA) where there is a tendency for superior loss of joint space acetabular protrusio Knee joint effusion typically involves the lateral[radiopaedia.org] Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Erythema Nodosum

    Subsequently the patient developed progressive skin and joints contracture. A repeated skin biopsy done three months later confirmed the diagnosis of NSF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Erythema, swelling, and tenderness occur over the joint, sometimes with effusions. Joint tenderness and morning stiffness may occur.[emedicine.medscape.com] X-rays of the joints are generally normal, showing no bony deformities or effusions.[symptoma.com]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Destructive surface changes contribute to pain and loss of motion, while ongoing growth disturbances and contractures produce further deformity (Figure 1).[healio.com] MRI MRI shows synovial hypertrophy, joint effusions as well as osseous and cartilaginous erosions.[radiopaedia.org] […] changed In some cases, symptoms of juvenile arthritis are mild and do not progress to more severe joint disease and deformities.[orthoinfo.aaos.org]

  • Crystal Arthropathy

    Signs: Pseudo-Rheumatoid (5% of CPPD Deposition Disease) Symmetric Polyarthritis with low grade inflammation Synovial thickening Flexion contractures Morning Stiffness Fatigue[fpnotebook.com] Examination features including joint effusion, joint line tenderness and reduced range of motion are common to both inflammatory and septic sources of arthropathy.[omicsonline.org] In the absence of joint effusion or indications to obtain a synovial biopsy, chondrocalcinosis is presumptive of CPPD deposition.[what-when-how.com]

  • Hemophilia

    This disease can lead to further symptoms such as: • progressive decreased motion • flexion contractures • muscle atrophy [1] The second most common presentation of hemophilia[physio-pedia.com] ) mucocutaneous bleeding (e.g. gums, nose, easy bruising) Physical Examination inspection pallor joint effusions bruising movement joint tenderness decreased ROM focal neurological[orthobullets.com] […] space Ultrasonography is useful in the evaluation of joints affected by acute or chronic effusions Testing for inhibitors is indicated when bleeding is not controlled after[emedicine.com]

  • Hemophilic Arthropathy

    […] of bone changes in Stage III joint space narrowed with destruction of cartilage IV NA marked enlargement of epiphysis fibrous joint contracture; loss of joint space; absence[meducator3.net] In the present review, we summarize major literature evidence on the use of joint US for the evaluation of markers of disease activity (joint effusion and synovial hypertrophy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiographic findings at this stage are generally limited to a dense joint effusion (hemarthrosis).[appliedradiology.com]
