Case contributed by Dr Hani Salam

Case Discussion

X-rays of multiple parts of the skeleton of a child demonstrate numerous linear, undulating regions of cortical sclerotic thickening predominantly involving the upper and lower extremities. Both at the elbow and the hip the abnormality crosses the joint.

The pattern is near classic for polyostotic melorheostosis
