Osteopathia striata

Dr Mark Thurston and Radswiki et al.

Osteopathia striata, also known as Voorhoeve disease, is a rare, benign sclerosing bone dysplasia, 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).

Radiographically prominent vertical striations predominate in the metaphyses and epiphyses of the long bones (celery stalk metaphysis).
