International Journal of STD & AIDS, 05/21/2012
Vera JH et al. – Bone marrow oedema syndrome (BMES, also known as transient osteoporosis) is an uncommon, self–limiting condition characterized by disabling pain, reversible osteopaenia on X–rays and by bone marrow oedema pattern on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Here authors describe the first reported case of BMES in an HIV–positive patient on highly active antiretroviral therapy.
