Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Voriconazole-related periostitis has been increasingly described in the literature over the last several years as a recognizable disease entity, especially in lung transplant patients. This relationship should be considered when approaching immunosuppressed patients presenting with diffuse bone pain and imaging findings of periostitis. We present a case of voriconazole-associated periostitis, capsular and enthesial ossification and glenuhumeral capsulitis in a patient with a hematologic malignancy. To the authors' knowledge, soft tissue ossification associated with voriconazole has not been described in the radiology literature.
