Syringe Which Corticosteroid Injected?

A 31-year-old man presents with pain and tenderness over her right radial styloid. On physical examination he had tenderness on palpation and a positive Finkelstein test. She is referred for occupational therapy and for a corticosteroid injection. Injection of the tendon sheath results in relief, but within several weeks she notes increasing pain, transient purplish skin discoloration, and soft tissue (fat) atrophy at the injection site.
On the basis of the skin findings, which corticosteroid injection was most likely used?
  • A Triamcinolone hexacetonide
  • B Dexamethasone sodium phosphate
  • C Betamethasone sodium phosphate and betamethasone acetate
  • D Triamcinolone acetonide
  • E Both A and B
