Abstract :

A 23-year-old African native male patient presented with fever, lumbalgia and dysuria after returning from a trip to Togo. His physical examination revealed pain over the pubic symphysis and rectal tenderness on digital exam. The C-reactive protein (CRP) level was elevated along with positive blood and urinary cultures for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. An magnetic resonance imaging that has been performed to rule out arthritis/osteomyelitis in the pubis revealed edema of the symphysis. An [.sup.18]F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography supported the diagnosis of prostate infection and showed a focal uptake of the pubic symphysis, with diffuse hyper-metabolism of the insertions of the rectus abdominis and longus adductor muscles, corresponding to athletic pubalgia. Fever and CRP responded rapidly to antibiotherapy. Keywords: PET/CT, magnetic resonance imaging, athletic pubalgia, sports hernia, prostatitis Yirmi uc yasinda Afrikali erkek hasta Togo seyahati sonrasi ates, lumbalji ve disuri sikayetleri ile basvurdu. Fizik muayenede symphysis pubis uzeri agri ve rektal tusede hassasiyet mevcuttu. C-reaktif protein (CRP) duzeyi yuksekti ve kan ve idrar kulturlerinde metisiline direncli Staphylococcus aureus uremesi saptandi. Pubiste olasi bir artrit/osteomiyeliti ekarte etmek icin istenen manyetik rezonans goruntulemede symphysiste odem goruldu.
