Pseudotumour of the calcaneus

Pseudotumour of the calcaneus is a normal variation of the trabecular pattern of the calcaneus on plain radiography secondary to atrophic trabeculae.

This condition is one of the skeletal "do not touch" lesions which can mimic a tumour-like (e.g. calcaneal lipoma) or a cyst-like (e.g. calcaneal simple bone cyst) lesion.
