ABSTRACT
Scurvy is very rare disease in industrialized societies. Nevertheless, it still exists in higher risk groups including economically disadvantaged populations with poor nutrition, such as the elderly and chronic alcoholics. The incidence of scurvy in the pediatric population is very low. This study reports a case of scurvy in a 5-year-old girl with cerebral palsy and developmental delay based on MRI findings.

A. Anteroposterior radiograph of both knees shows a thick sclerotic metaphyseal line (thin black arrows) above a widened physis and small beaklike excrescences (white arrows) at the metaphysis in both femora. Soft tissue bulging is noted (thick black arrow).B.Lateral radiograph of the left knee shows a disruption of the alignment of the distal femoral physis (arrow).

Figure 1: A. Anteroposterior radiograph of both knees shows a thick sclerotic metaphyseal line (thin black arrows) above a widened physis and small beaklike excrescences (white arrows) at the metaphysis in both femora. Soft tissue bulging is noted (thick black arrow).B.Lateral radiograph of the left knee shows a disruption of the alignment of the distal femoral physis (arrow).

Mentions: The radiographs of both knees showed osteopenia, which is a thick sclerotic metaphyseal line above a widened physis, and small beak-like excrescences at the metaphysis of both femora. In addition, a disruption of the alignment of the distal physis of the left femur was also noted (Fig. 1).
