Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Morel-Lavallée lesions are closed soft tissue degloving injuries with a propensity to become infected, arising in the lumbosacral region or even the scalp, common anatomical locations in neuroradiological studies. The radiologist must recognize this entity, its traumatic etiology, and treatment options. Our patient's Morel-Lavallée lesion was evaluated with ultrasound and MRI, demonstrating a predominantly hemorrhagic lesion successfully managed by aspiration.
