Patient
male, 47 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Plain radiography of the right lower leg
     

    Plain radiography, AP view, of the right lower leg shows multiple oval, sharply demarcated lytic lesions in the cortex of the tibia and fibula.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Plain radiography of the right lower leg;

    Radiograph of the left calcaneus and midfoot, lateral view demonstrates extensive osteolysis in the calcaneus and the midfoot.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Plain radiography of the right lower leg;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    The left calcaneus and midfoot, MRI studies
     

    MR of the right foot, sagittal T2-weighted image shows hyperintense lesions in the calcaneus and also in the midfoot.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The left calcaneus and midfoot, MRI studies;

    On coronal T1-weighted image of the tibia and fibula before therapy there are multiple small nodular hypointense lesions in the bone marrow of both tibiae and proximal fibulae.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The left calcaneus and midfoot, MRI studies;

    On coronal T1-weighted image after therapy. MRI of the tibia and fibula, the bone marrow lesions in the tibia have disappeared.
