The end-result of such a process as seen in adults is a flattening of the head, which is sometimes displaced downward slightly on the neck. TENDONS AND BURSiE. Effusion or hemorrhage in or about these tissues is shown by an area of slightly increased density with indefinite margins. Synovitis of the Achilles, quadriceps or extensor longus pollicis tendons may occasionally be suspected from thickening of the shadow and blurring of its ordinarily sharp outlines. Calcification is frequently encountered at tendinous attachments particularly those of the triceps on the olecranon, the quadriceps and patella? tendons on the patella and the Achilles and plantar tendons on the os calcis. The great majority of these lesions are gonorrheal although other cocci may be responsible for them at times. Areas of increased density seen in the region of the subdeltoid bursa may be true calcifications in the bursa, which are rare; accumulations of an opaque gelatinous substance in the bursa; or, what is more common, calcification about the tendon of the supraspinatus beneath it. Calcification may occur in any bursa which has been the seat of trauma or infection. Myostitis Ossificans.--A rare disease in which ossification occurs in the soft tissues. There are two forms, one following trauma and the other congenital, of no known etiology, following a very slowly progressive course. In both cases there is hemorrhage into the soft parts and instead of the normal absorption, a more or less complete ossification. The first form is prone to occur about joints after dislocations and in muscles subject to trauma such as the quadriceps. The disease is to be differentiated from calcification extending into the soft tissues as a result of periosteal...Read Less
