PURPOSE To report on 14 patients with osteoid osteomas treated by computed tomography-guided radiofrequency ablation. METHODS Nine males and 5 females aged 13 to 45 (mean, 25) years with osteoid osteomas were included. The proximal tibia was the commonest site involved. A bipolar 18-gauge radiofrequency probe with a 9- mm active tip was used. A 4.5-mm… (More)
Progressive pseudorheumatoid chondrodysplasia is an autosomal recessively inherited skeletal dysplasia, characterised by platyspondyly and progressive arthropathy. We report a 26-year-old woman who presented with a history of waddling gait, progressive restriction of movements of several joints and swelling of interphalangeal joints since her late… (More)
The association of linear scleroderma with melorheostosis is very rare. Until now, only a few cases have been reported in the English literature. We describe a case of melorheostosis of a rib associated with overlying skin changes.
