Abstract

Background/objective: Heterotopic ossification characterized by new bone formation in the periarticular regions of large joints in patients with neurologic injury most commonly occurs on the neurologically involved side. This study presents a very rare localization of heterotopic ossification that developed in the non-paretic limbs of a hemiplegic patient with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
