The fibrous metaphyseal defect in early stage. Differential diagnosis to metaphysitis.
Pediatr Radiol. 1992; 22(6):461-2.PR

Abstract

In a 22-month-old boy a fibrous metaphyseal defect (FMD) was diagnosed by radiological follow-up examinations. The initial radiological finding could not be differentiated from metaphysitis because of its early manifestation and stage. Eleven months later, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with Gadolinium (Gd)-DTPA demonstrated a small central area of increased signal intensity. Based on known angiographic findings with fibrous metaphyseal defects, one may hypothesize that this is best explained by a hypervascularized area.
