Iliac Crest Pain Syndrome
I'm pursuing medicine and I'd like to know the effect of fusion of iliac crest on the height. To what extent its fusion increases the height of a man?
None: When the iliac crest fuses (fuses all the way), that means the skeleton has finished growing in height. The iliac crest itself does not cause one to be taller or shorter (or at least not by any noticeable amount). Height is affected by growth in the long bones (such as the leg bones) plus growth in the spine. Read more
Spur: This sounds like a bone spur possibly from some old mechanical irritation. It isn't significant unless there are generalized bone changes. Hypertrophic changes are seen in the joints of people with wear and tear arthritis (osteoarthritis). A radiologist can give you more of an explanation, however. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

IT band?: The iliotibial band, or itb, runs along the outer thigh from the iliac crest to the outside of the knee joint and is a very frequent source of hip pain in runners. The itb acts to stabilize the pelvis, so any source of continued imbalance between your right and left legs can lead to tightness and pain on the side that is effectively made longer. A physical medicine doctor can help sort this out. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A number of things.: It is difficult for a person to tell exactly where pain at the left iliac crest comes from. A while it could be from the bone below the hip, it can from the soft tissues: muscles/ skin/ligaments/nerves. Additionally pain can be referred: from some other structures higher up. So one needs to see the doctor for an evaluation to determine where the pain really is. Read more

I was told I have a 3.4cm mxed sclerotic lytic lesion on my right iliac crest and to have an MRI done. What does it mean?
More information: Mixed lesion consists of dense bone and areas of bone with reduced density. Mr suggested to better define contents of lesion, surrounding margins, and changes in the soft tissues around bone, and changes in adjacent bone marrow. A lot of times these lesions according to the imaging results eventually have to be biopsied to be specific about diagnosis, and confirm benign or malignant character.

I have trochanter bursitis and am now experiencing similar pain higher in the area of the iliac crest. Are bursae located in that area as well?
Lumbar spine: Pain in the iiac crest region especially towards the back is more than likely related to your lumbar spine. We all develop some degree of arthritis and degenerative changes in our axial spine. Poor posture along with degeneration and desiccation of the lumbar disc tissue leads to nerve root impingement which can cause referred pain down your back into the legs depending on the nerve root affected.
