Make the Diagnosis: A 38-Year-Old Man with Sciatica
Source: MedPage Today Dermatology [2015.02.23]
(MedPage Today) -- Case Study: A thirty-eight-year-old man presented with a four-year history of gradually worsening pain in the lower back and radiation of the pain down both lower limbs. The symptoms began following an automobile accident. A clinical diagnosis of sciatica was made. An MRI of the lumbar spine showed a prolapse of the disc between L4 and L5. An epidural steroid injection temporarily relieved the back pain but did not relieve the radiating pain in the right lower limb. Twelve months later, a repeat MRI revealed a possible lesion posterior to the right acetabulum that could not be evaluated in detail because it was at the edge of the field of view. Clinical evaluation of the hip revealed deep gluteal pain that radiated down the right lower limb and a positive straight-leg-raising test. A detailed MRI of the pelvis, shown here, revealed a 5.8 × 2.2 × 3.8-cm mass deep to the right gluteus maximus and inferior to the piriformis. The tail of the mass extended anteriorly to the posterior aspect of the right labrum. The sciatic nerve (curved arrow in panel d) crossed the anterior aspect of the lesion. (In this image, Ob Int = left obturator internus muscle, F = left femoral head, GMax = left gluteus maximus muscle, and UBl = urinary bladder.)
