Insufficiency fracture of the supra-acetabulum that required differentiation from a pathological fracture secondary to a malignant bone tumor: a case report.

Case study A 74-year-old Japanese man was admitted to the hospital due to right hip joint pains, which was followed by right hip joint pains. In the immediate area of a T2-weighted image, a linear, low-signal region and its immediate equal signal region were visible at the same location as the T1-weighted image, as well as a high signal region and high signal region. The bone density for the lumbar spine was 66%, with an increase in alkaline phosphatase and total type I procollagen N-terminal propeptide, according to a study by the blood biochemistry. Conclusion By biopsy specimen, this case was diagnosed as an insufficiency fracture of the supra-acetabulum in a male patient with primary osteoporosis. This is expected to be bone marrow edema as a result of the stress fracture, and we believe this to be a useful finding that may help distinguish a stress fracture attributed to a pathological fracture secondary to a malignant lesion.
