Case

A 42-year-old male suffered from the right posterior thigh pain after playing baseball 1 week ago. His pain could not be relieved by nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drug and got worse when jogging. He came to our clinic where ecchymosis and local tenderness were noticed at his right proximal thigh. An ultrasound examination was, therefore, applied using a curvilinear transducer. The short-axis and long-axis views of the ultrasound images over the painful site are presented in [Figure 1]a and b, respectively. The short-axis ultrasound image over the contralateral asymptomatic site is provided in [Figure 2]. What is your diagnosis?
