7 Possible Causes for Patellar Sclerosis

  • Malum Coxae Senilis

    Growth of tibial spines - yanking on ACL & PCL Usually more pronounce on LATERAL side "Patellar tooth sign" - degenerative ENTHYSOPHATHIC changes leading to Irregular appearance[] […] decrease in joint space - Medial Lateral (tibiofemoral joint) - better seen w/ weight bearing views - Leads to GENU VARUS deformity Osteophytes Subchondral cysts Subchonrdal sclerosis[]

  • Chondromalacia Patellae

    Stage 4: crater formation and eburnation of the exposed subchondral bone more than 50% of the patellar articular surface exposed, with sclerosis and erosions of the subchondral[] These can be used to evaluate for joint space narrowing, subchondral sclerosis, osteophytes, articular degeneration, and patellar alignment.[] Stage 3: fissures ulceration, fragmentation, and fibrillation of cartilage extending to the subchondral bone but affecting less than 50% of the patellar articular surface.[]

  • Patellar Dislocation

    Changes due to osteoarthritis with patellar osteophyte formation (arrowhead), and subchondral sclerosis and cysts (black arrow) are also apparent in the lateral femoral trochlear[]

  • Osteochondral Loose Body

    Articular surface irregularity and subchondral sclerosis are evident on the sagittal image.[] T1-weighted image ( Fig. 6A ) and an axial proton density (PD) fat-saturated image ( Fig. 6B ) show a very large irregular intra-articular loose body in the superomedial patellar[]

  • Coccidioidomycosis

    They may be associated with osteocutaneous fistulous tracts and are especially suggestive of coccidioidomycosis when found at bony prominences such as patellar edges; acromial[] […] spleen), meninges, joints, and bones. 5 The bony lesions are usually low grade, lytic lesions of cancellous bones that display little or no tendency to produce reactive sclerosis[]

  • Muscle-Eye-Brain Disease Type A2

    […] systemic sclerosis Pulmonary venoocclusive disease 17q23.1q23.2 microdeletion syndrome Coxo-podo-patellar syndrome Familial clubfoot due to 17q23.1q23.2 microduplication[] Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy Diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis Limited cutaneous[]

  • Cardio-Spondylo-Carpo-Facial Syndrome

    Acute Bursitis Anterior Dislocation Rotator Cuff Repair SLAP Injury Neurological conditions Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Bells palsy Brachial plexus injury Cauda equina[] […] bursitis Patellar dislocation / subluxation patellofemoral pain syndrome Unhappy triad / O'Donoghue Compartmental syndrome Gastrocnemius tear Acromioclavicular Separation[] Knee instability Knee ligament injury Knee meniscus injury Lateral collateral ligament strain Medial collateral ligament strain Meniscectomy rehabilitation Meniscus injury Patellar[]
