Abstract:

Transient Osteoporosis is a rare disorder mainly affecting pregnant women in their third trimester, as well as middle-aged men. A 39-year-old woman presented with severe pain of right knee in the third trimester, of pregnancy. Imaging of the knee with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) obtained 3 months after the C-Section demonstrated bone-marrow edema of the distal metaphysis of the femur and proximal metaphysis of the tibia and fibula with consequent trabecular fractures of condyles with periosteal response. The patient was treated conservatively by physical therapy. Repeated MRI performed 1 year after the onset of the symptoms revealed almost complete regression of the massive bone-marrow edema.

Keywords:
