In connection with one case of thoracic localized osteolysis associated to bilateral seral effusion, serohemorrhagic on the right, chylous on the left, the authors recall 13 similar observations. In this localization a pleural effusion is very frequent and specific to it, putting at stake the vital prognosis of the patient. These observations can be compared to multiple osteolyses and be grouped together under the name of "intraosseous capillary ectasies".

Gorham's disease with spontaneous recovery.
TLDR
It is reported that spontaneous recovery is very rarely reported in a 17-year-old boy with Gorham's disease, and the clinician's acute awareness and high degree of suspicion are required for diagnosis.
Gorham's disease of the fibula: a case report.
TLDR
Because the course of the disease is unpredictable and may arrest spontaneously, and based on the results observed in the patient described in this article, conservative treatment may be appropriate for Gorham's disease localized to the distal fibula, it is believed that fibular grafts may be used in the treatment of the disorder.
