FIGURE 52-1

A. Standard radiology image indicates infection with sclerosis of the proximal tibia and periosteal elevation and obvious bone destruction with an apparent cavity and the suggestion of a sequestrum in the proximal medial tibia. B and C. Magnetic resonance images more clearly visualize the bone and soft tissue anatomy, confirming an extensive infection with destruction within the proximal tibia that has extended into the surrounding soft tissues and the joint as well as a ring of calcification most consistent with an abscess. D. A longitudinal MRI shows the extent of longitudinal bone destruction and soft tissue involvement with contrast enhancement that suggests viable marrow from the middle to the distal tibial shaft.

FIGURE 52-2

Acute osteomyelitis. The primary site of infection is usually in the metaphysial region, from which the infection may spread to involve the cortex and form a subperiosteal abscess; may spread into the medullary cavity; or, rarely, may spread into the adjacent joint space.
