Medical Case Details:

Hello doctors,

One of my patient, 40 years old male, have been suffering from pain in wrist joint. MRI Lt wrist indicates -
1) Negative Ulnar Variance with osteophytic lipping and degenerative subarticular cystic changes along ulnar articular surface.
2) Intrasubstance PD fat sat hyperintense signal intensity involving foveal and radial attachment of triangular fibrocartilage with minimal perifocal soft tissue edema raises possibility of sprain.

This patient has been working out for many years. Pain in left wrist has been going on for years. He takes pain killer as required. Kindly suggest the further treatment plan.

    Hello Sir,
    X ray is not done. I don't have digital copy of MRI so it will be difficult to share here . I will try to get one and upload here.

    Thank you all for the responses

    @dr.anuj - unfortunately patient doesn't have access to digital copy of MRI , hence not possible to upload here.

    @dr.jay - patient has started physiotherapy, hope he start feeling better.

    @ dr. Shanmuganandan - what can be the possible treatment for secondary oa as per your view point?

    Seems like Osteo arthritis.
    NSAIDS(enteral adn topical) and movement restriction might help.
    If still not working, intralesional steroids maybe considered.
    What do you say?

    Regards :)
