Image 8: SPECT axial image, Tc99 mDP bone scan

Findings: Radiographs demonstrate a subtle loss of the normal femoral head neck offset but no focal lesion. MRI demonstrates marrow edema of the right femoral neck and a joint effusion. Subtle low signal focus is seen on the axial image and a labral tear is present on the sagittal sequence. CT demonstrates a subtle lucent focus of the anterior femoral cortex and there is increased activity focally at this location on the bone scan.

Image 11: Osteoid osteoma

Diagnosis: Osteoid Osteoma

Discussion: Bony lesion of osteoid and immature bone that incites an adjacent reactive bony/inflammatory response secondary to prostoglandin release. Typically in younger patients (5-25 ) and with a classic clinical pattern of night time pain alleviated with aspirin. Classified as cortical, cancellous, and subperiosteal. This case presents the rarest type, a subperiosteal lesion. Current standard of care is radiofrequency ablation if possible or resection.
