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.

Fig3: The removed exostosis

Mentions: Surgical treatment was performed because the patient presented pain and impingement with footwear. The tumor (Fig. 3) was located on the medial side of the talus, was juxtaarticular, and was “localized” according to the classification of Azouz et al. [2], measuring 2.9 × 1.9 cm. A large peduncle was present on the medial surface of the talus. The tumor had developed in front of the medial surface of the talus and under it.Fig. 3
