Morel-Lavallée Lesion: Closed Degloving Injury, Less Known.

Rahul Chivate, Reema Choudhary, Palak Thakrar, Deepak Patkar, Sachin Deshmukh.

Morel-Lavallée lesion is a rare post traumatic soft tissue injury resulting from separation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue from the underlying fascia and creating an underlying blood filled cystic cavity. Several times the lesions are missed during initial examination and become evident after few weeks or months. They may be associated with fractures. Magnetic resonance imaging is the modality of choice for the evaluation of this lesion. It plays a significant role in its diagnosis. The imaging findings depend on the stage of lesion. We report three cases of the rare Morel-Lavallée lesion and its imaging characteristics.

Key words: Moral-Lavallée, closed degloving injury, magnetic resonance imaging.
