IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
AP radiograph of the leg of a 44-year-old male with a history of a crushing fracture of the tibia 25 years before shows extensive, mature heterotopic bone formation in the anterior compartment just anterior to the fibula that could be misdiagnosed as a bone-forming tumor. However, this x-ray shows evidence of an old healed compartment syndrome with extensive heterotopic bone formation in the muscle secondary to an old crushing injury that was never treated surgically.
