Tibial Stress Fracture-MRI

Stress fractures are common  in running athletes.  Misinterpretation can result from a similar clinical and radiological early course in stress fractures and bone tumors. We present an athlete with a clinical diagnosis of a meniscus lesion. The following MRI images were reported outside as  for mitotic etiology versus infection.  These images were referred to us for second opinion and a diagnosis of stress fracture or medial tibial stress fracture was suggested.

Two popular theories have been proposed to account for this condition: tibial bending and fascial traction- Reference- Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. Volume 97 Number 1 31-36 2007
