Patrick test is done for? (PNQ)



A Sacroiliitis

B Shoulder dislocation

C Hip dislocation

D Supra condylar fracture

Ans. A Sacroiliitis

Ref: Nelson, 18th edition, page 2857

1. Sacroiliitis presents as lumbar pain that is usually chronic but occasionally is associated with a history of trauma.

2. Patients have a positive result with the Patrick test, which includes resting the foot of the affected side on the opposite knee (hip flexed 90 degrees), stabilizing the opposite iliac crest, and externally rotating the hip on the affected side (pushing the knee down and lateral).

A radiograph of the sacroiliac joints is indicated, and if results are positive, exploration for a rheumatologic disease (ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis) is warranted
