Description: Radiology case 415-3221 16 year old girl with painful swollen right shoulder.
There is a reduced bone density in the proximal metaphysis and the fusing epiphysis of the right humerus. The endosteal margin of the lesion in the diaphysis is ill-defined with a wide zone of transition between normal and abnormal bone. There is elevation of the periosteum that also marks the lower extent of the lesion. The lamellar periosteal new bone shows the presence of Codman's triangles on both sides of the upper section of the diaphysis. Soft tissue density with additional contained ossific density, separate from the expected density of the deltoid also indicates extra-axial extension. The epiphyseal line is just visible.
