The lower panel demonstrates the lesion in the supraclavicular area on conventional ultrasonography. Encapsulated cystic lesion with hyperechogenic areas inside being in constant movement. The upper panel shows largely decreased elasticity of the peripheral part of the lesion on sonoelastographic examination.

Subcutaneous Lesion in an Oncologic Patient

A 40-year-old Caucasian woman presented to our university hospital after she noticed a mass in the right supraclavicular area. The lump was easily palpable, sized 1-1.5 cm, firm, and rather immovable, with surrounding edema (Figure 1). She had noticed the lesion approximately 2 weeks earlier, and during that time the mass was gradually enlarging. Her personal […]

(A) Bone scintigraphy showing multiple uptake sites in the skull, vertebrae, and costal bones. (B) 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography CT revealed low-level fluorodeoxyglucose accumulation in the vertebral bones.

A Rare Cause of Multiple Bone Lesions: Metastasis or Not?

  Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows high sensitivity for detecting metastatic bone tumors, but distinguishing metastasis from benign lesions is sometimes difficult. We report a case of hyperplastic hematopoietic bone marrow mimicking metastasis. Different radioisotopes in nuclear imaging clarified multiple bone lesion pathophysiologies. A 59-year-old woman with no medical history presented with a 6-month history […]
