DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN RUPTURED BAKER’S CYST AND DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS (DVT)

SEPTEMBER 2012 - VOL.4 | CASE REPORT

In cases of calf pain and swelling, diagnosis by physical examination alone may be difficult. Emergency physicians will need the history and duration of occurrence as well as routine laboratory findings to help them make the decisiom. Initial investigation may begin with ultrasound, followed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We present a case report of using these systems step by step until the diagnosis was established.
