A 48 year-old male with a past medical history of gout,
degenerative disc disease, and T cell lymphoma treated
with chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood
stem cell transplant, currently in remission, presented
seven days status-post a non-myeloablative allogeneic
transplant with an acute onset of excruciating left hip
and groin pain and a low-grade fever. The physical exam
did not reveal any obvious cause of his extreme pain.
