OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to illustrate the spectrum of solitary gluteal lesions in children. The distinctive anatomic and radiologic features are discussed. CONCLUSION. Pathologic entities in the gluteal region reflect the diversity of tissue types present. Ultrasound is valuable for imaging of infants and young children and for evaluating superficial lesions. Cross-sectional imaging is most useful for defining the extent of disease and may show pathognomonic features, enabling a precise diagnosis.
