文章摘要 全文翻译

Heterotopic ossification is a benign process of mature laminar bone formation in the soft tissues. A synonymous term used to describe this pathology in muscle is myositis ossificans. The pathogenesis is unclear, but is likely multifactorial. The basic pathology is thought to be ectopic production of osseous tissue as part of a repair process in response to tissue injury. This report describes a case of heterotopic ossification of the quadratus lumborum muscle as an incidental finding. This case highlights that treatment is based on symptoms and conservative management might be appropriate for the asymptomatic patient.

异位骨化是软组织中成熟层状骨形成的一个良性过程。用来描述肌肉中这一病理的一个同义词为骨化性肌炎。其发病机制尚不清楚,但可能是多因素的。目前认为其基本病理是组织损伤修复过程的一部分。本文介绍了一例腰方肌异位骨化的偶发病例。该病例强调根据症状治疗,且保守治疗可能适用于无症状患者。
