Pediatric Baker's Cyst-MRI
Baker cysts, though generally rare in children, show a relatively high prevalence in certain paediatric subpopulations, namely, in patients with arthritis and benign joint hypermobility syndrome. This is MRI of 7 year old boy with swelling in popliteal fossa. There is evidence of T2 hyperintense fluid intensity lesion in the popliteal fossa in semimembranous-gastrocnemius bursa with thin neck apparently communicating with the knee joint. Possible baker's cyst. No obvious underlying arthritis.
