Case Report 295


Fig. 1 A, B. PA and lateral roentgenograms of the wrist demonstrate grossly destructive changes particularly affecting the scaphoid and perhaps the trapezium and trapezoid bones (profound osteoporosis mimicking destructive lesions cannot be excluded). Observe the pathological fracture through the waist of the scaphoid. In addition to the severe osteoporosis mainly affecting the carpal bones, thinning of the radiocarpal joint cartilage, as well as marked thinning of the cartilage between the scaphoid and lunate, is noted. Only a minimal degree of soft tissue swelling is defined. The subcutaneous fat planes are preserved (arrow). Periosteal reaction is absent
