  • Figure 1
    AP Radiograph of the lower extremities
     

    AP radiograph of the bilateral lower extremities revealed symmetrical metaphyseal lucent bands in the distal femurs, proximal tibias and distal tibias (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    There is serrated appearance of the metaphyses of the right distal femur and distal tibia (arrows) with sparing of the radiodense periphyseal zones of provisional calcification.

     
    Area of Interest: Extremities; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    AP Radiographs of the upper extremities
     

    AP radiograph of the right upper extremity. Metaphyseal lucent bands similar to those in the lower extremities predominantly involving the proximal ulna and distal radius (arrows)

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    AP radiograph of the left upper extremity with lucent metaphysical bands (short arrow) and in addition, a focal area of erosion involving the left distal humerus (long arrow).
