Abstract

Adequate assessment of pressure ulcers involvement in patients with neurological diseases has crucial therapeutic implications, especially as for the early detection of fistula to inner structures and osteomyelitis (OM) are concerned. Two case reports are presented, with patients with a similar ischiatic ulcer, in whom an 18F-FDG PET/CT study allowed a precise assessment of infectious complications in inner tissues, thus supporting the implementation of 18F-FDG PET/CT as a first-line technique in their management.

Keywords:
Pressure ulcers
Osteomyelitis
18F-FDG PET/CT
Resumen

La correcta valoración de la extensión de las úlceras de presión en los pacientes con enfermedad neurológica presenta implicaciones terapéuticas, en especial en la detección precoz de la fistulización hacia estructuras profundas y la osteomielitis. Presentamos aquí a dos pacientes con una úlcera isquiática similar y en los que la PET/TC con 18F-FDG permitió delimitar adecuadamente las complicaciones infecciosas profundas, por lo que se sugiere la necesidad de incluir esta técnica como primera línea diagnóstica.

Palabras clave:
Úlceras por presión
Osteomielitis
PET/TC con 18F-FDG
