Morel- lavallee lesion: A case report


Nandish VS, Balaji TG


Background: Morel-Lavallee Lesion (MLL) is a closed soft tissue degloving injury occruing following a blunt trauma. This lesion almost always occurs after direct trauma to the pelvis, thigh, and knee, soft tissue overlying bony prominences like greater trochanter, lower back and scapula. Imaging studies like Ultrasonography (USG), Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used for the diagnosis. Case Report: A 38 years old male presented with a swelling over the right thigh since 15 days following a trauma. The swelling had gradually increased in size with no history of fever or weight loss. The X-ray of the right thigh revealed soft tissue density and the involvement of the underlying bone was ruled out. Surgical excision specimen of the same was sent for histopathological examination. Conclusion: Morel-Lavallee Lesion is not commonly encountered entity. However, history of trauma over bony prominences, imaging studies followed by histopathological examination can aid in early diagnosis and management of patients.
