A previous anterior incision is well healed. The knee feels slightly warm to the touch and is tender in the medial joint line. The neurovascular examination of the extremity is normal. The skin is intact with no evidence of ulceration. There is minor ankle edema bilaterally. Imaging Studies Physical examination did not reveal a specific diagnosis.
Anteroposterior, lateral, and skyline radiographs of the knee were performed. The patient has also had bone scan images performed at an outside institution, copies of which were brought for evaluation.
