Epiphyseal lesions (mnemonic)

The differential diagnosis for epiphyseal lesions can be recalled with mnemonics for the most common entities:

  • Chondroblastoma IS AGE-related 1

See the separate article for the full list: epiphyseal lesions (differential).


Chondroblastoma IS AGE-related

This mnemonic notes the fact that the appropriate differential changes with the age of the patient, with chondroblastoma being the most common primary neoplasm in this region in children.

An alternative is the following 1:

Bone tumours

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