French term or phrase: post IM
In a report on a spinal X-ray (lumbar, sacral, pelvis):

"Calcifications fessières droites post IM". Does "post-IM" refer to sequelae from intramuscular injections? Or would calcifications in the right buttock be consistent with mitral valve insufficiency? I'd appreciate some expert guidance. TIA

Hi Sarah
Without more context, your first suggestion seems likely.

See this regarding complications of IM injections:

Scar formation. The significance of the necrosis may be negligible when few injections are given, but if multiple injections are given, especially in the same area over a protracted period of time, the areas of necrosis may become quite large and result in large areas of fibrosis of the tissues. This may be manifested by hard nodules felt deep in the tissues and even sunken areas of scar tissue seen on the surface of the skin. Dystrophic calcification of the scar tissue can occur with time resulting in even more painful areas. This is shown in Case 3 of this article. Once this occurs, operative excision of the area is the only therapy.
