Iliopsoas Bursitis/ Tenditis-MRI
The iliopsoas bursa is the largest bursal sac in the body; in 15% of normal individuals, it communicates with the hip joint between the iliofemoral and pubofemoral ligaments. Iliopsoas bursitis can be caused by various hip joint abnormalities such as joint degeneration, rheumatoid arthritis, PVNS, synovial osteochondromatosis, gout, joint infection, or avascular necrosis. Other possible causes include sacro-iliac joint and adjacent spine pathology.
