Cookie bite skeletal metastases

Cookie bite metastases are characterised by small focal eccentric lytic external cortical destruction in long tubular bones.

This type of destruction is typically described for metastases from bronchogenic carcinoma, however they can also occur with other tumours.

Bone tumours

The differential diagnosis for bone tumours is dependent on the age of the patient, with a very different set of differentials for the paediatric patient.
