Sinus Tarsi Syndrome : MRI

  • Sinus Tarsi Syndrome usually presents with lateral foot pain and tenderness. 
  •  Pathologically there is scarring and degenerative changes of soft-tissue structures in the sinus tarsi. 
  • Patients may have history of inversion injury with lateral ligament complex tears, and it is frequently associated with posterior tibial tendon injury. 
  • On MRI, in the acute setting there is increased signal in fat on T2 weighted images due to edema.  The T1-hyperintense fat in the sinus tarsi space is replaced by either fluid or scar tissue, and the ligaments may be disrupted.
  • Treatment is usually conservative
