A 17-year-old male presented with a history of a football injury to his quadriceps muscle approximately two months before this radiograph was taken. The left side shows the appearance of early ossification within the muscle. The right side of this composite radiograph shows the lesion three months later. It has matured and is becoming asymptomatic. It shows a zonal pattern with peripheral mature ossification and a firm attachment to the subadjacent femur. This patient had no disability associated with this lesion and for that reason the lesion was not removed. He went back to playing football.
