Osteopathia striata, also known as Voorhoeve disease, is a rare, benign dysplasia of bone, involving the epiphysis and metaphysis of tubular bones.
Oseopathia striata can be found in any age group.
It is typically asymptomatic, although there can be associated joint discomfort.
There is an association with focal dermal hypoplasia (Goltz syndrome).
Osteopathia striata is typically bilateral, although occasionally it can be unilateral, typically in tubular bones.
Radiographically prominent vertical striations predominate in the metaphyses and epiphyses of the long bones (celery stalk metaphysis).
