ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Aneurysmal Bone Cyst

History: 11y/o female with h/o trauma now with persistent pain.

Findings: AP, lateral and oblique radiographic views of the right foot show a well-defined radiolucent medullary mass of the cuboid bone that expands the cortex but does not cause cortical disruption. There is a narrow zone of transition. Follow-up radiographs after curettage show the cement placement in the region of curettage without recurrence of the aneurysmal bone cyst. Axial CT of the right foot with bone windows show a lytic mass expanding the cuboid bone and measuring 3 cm x 2.6 cm in greatest dimension with multiple fluid-fluid levels. The cortex is thinned. Soft tissue windows suggest fluid-fluid levels. No matrix calcifications are seen. These findings are consistent with an aneurysmal bone cyst.

Ddx: Simple bone cyst Giant cell tumor Eosinohilic granuloma Osteoblastoma Chondroblastoma Infection (Brodie’s abscess)

Dxhow: Aneurysmal Bone Cyst (ABC) without associated tumor was confirmed by histologic evaluation of curettage material.

No MeSH data available.
