Abstract

An unusual case of prepatellar bursitis is presented. The term “massive” was used to describe its unusual size. Furthermore, its pathological features were not typical of prepatellar bursitis. The mass contained orange-colored liquid and a piece of pink colored soft tissue 4 cm in diameter. Histologicolly, areas of hyalinization and calcification were noted in its wall. The material inside contained cholesterin crystals and foreign body giant cells as wells as a fibrin like material. Thus, the mass resembled a ganglion or a Baker s cyst rather than prepatellar bursitis.

Özet

Olağandışı irilikte bir prepatellar bursit olgusu sunuldu. Ayrıca iriliği dışında farklı patolojik özellikleri nedeniyle de olgu atipik olarak değerlendirildi.
