Case Discussion

70-year-old man with wrist pain presents to the ED. There is a septated lytic expansile lesion of the distal radius which appears to abut the articular surface.  The proximal margin of this lesion is somewhat poorly defined.  There is no evidence of an aggressive periosteal reaction.   In addition, there is a suggestion of a pathologic fracture of the distal radius with a few vague linear lucencies noted.
