It occurs in a variety of conditions, such as previous trauma (tendon rupture or repeated microtrauma) [9], postarthroplasties [10], vasculopathies, central nervous system injury [11], burn injury [12], metabolic conditions, such as diabetes, Wilson's disease and ochronosis, DISH (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis), and seronegative arthropathies [13].
