Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica of the talus.

Azzoni R - J Orthop Traumatol (2008)

Bottom Line: The lesion is an osteochondroma arising from the epiphysis and increasing in size until skeletal maturity is reached.In those cases where articular symptoms are not present and only mass evolution is observed, surgical treatment is not recommended before skeletal maturity has been reached.A case of DEH located in the talus and successfully treated with surgery is presented.

ABSTRACT
Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica is a rare developmental disorder with unknown etiology affecting epiphysis in childhood. The lesion is an osteochondroma arising from the epiphysis and increasing in size until skeletal maturity is reached. Surgical treatment is mandatory when symptoms such as pain, joint impingement or deformation are present, and yields good results when the mass is juxtaarticular or extraarticular. In those cases where articular symptoms are not present and only mass evolution is observed, surgical treatment is not recommended before skeletal maturity has been reached. A case of DEH located in the talus and successfully treated with surgery is presented.
