Proximal ITB syndrome is a recently described entity. As defined in the original description, it is a strain injury of the proximal ITB enthesis at the iliac tubercle. The reports to date have been retrospective and little is known about the true incidence. Early results suggest that most patients who are imaged are female, some are runners, some are non-athletic and some have a specific antecedent traumatic event. The appropriate therapy is unknown and is likely conservative in most patients. MR imaging appears to be an excellent modality for diagnosing and evaluating the severity of Proximal ITB Syndrome.
