Overview

abstract

  • Calcific tendinitis of the proximal thigh is a benign entity that may cause significant pain. It must be distinguished from chronic or malignant disorders, such as arthritis, infection, and soft tissue/cortical neoplasms. Although it may be self-limited, some patients will benefit from medical intervention. In such cases, we recommend computed tomography-guided percutaneous steroid injection. Herein we describe the clinical and radiographic features of calcific tendinitis of the proximal thigh in 5 patients.
