Abstract Share this page

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a common form of non-inflammatory rheumatism within the general population with symptoms often mimicking those of arthritis or muscle disorders. Arthralgic symptoms in the region of the hip are commonly mentioned by patients with FMS and one of the diagnostic trigger points for the condition is found around the greater trochanter. To date, no formal imaging studies using ultrasound (US) have been performed in FMS. This study describes the correlation between clinical and US findings in patients presenting with primary FMS to rheumatology clinics. In the majority of the patients, no significant pathological US abnormalities were detected.
