Abstract

Stress reactions in the bones of the lower extremities are a common finding on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The primary finding in the bone marrow is nonspecific edema without any visible fracture line that may even mimic tumor or infection. Continuing stress may eventually lead to a stress fracture. We present the case of a stress reaction related to breakdancing in a less typical localization, in the triquetral bone in the wrist.
