Abstract

Tibialis anterior muscle hernia is a challenging diagnosis. Ultrasound findings generally are negative because patients come to ultrasound study from home when they are at rest. When the operator of ultrasound suspects a muscle hernia, he has to scan the affected limb or the affected organ dynamically at rest and after stressing the limb. Here, we present a case of a 19-year-old dancer with anterior leg mass with negative ultrasonographic findings at rest but was diagnosed with tibialis anterior hernia after stress dynamic ultrasound.
