An update on the imaging of diaphyseal aclasis.

Skeletal Radiol 2021 Apr 1. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Department of Radiology, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, UK.

Solitary osteochondromas are common, benign hyaline cartilage-capped exostoses that primarily arise from the metaphyses of long and flat bones. Diaphyseal aclasis is an autosomal dominant condition resulting from EXT1 or EXT2 gene mutations and is characterized by multifocal osteochondromas. These can result in a wide spectrum of complications, such as skeletal deformity, neurological and vascular complications, adventitial bursa formation, fracture, and rarely malignant transformation to peripheral chondrosarcoma.

In Vivo 2021 Mar-Apr;35(2):681-691

Anatomy - Histology - Embryology, University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece.

Osteochondroma, the most common benign bone tumor, is a projection on the external surface of the bone, which can be sessile or pedunculated. 85% of osteochondromas present as solitary lesions, while 15% occur in the context of hereditary multiple exostoses (HME), a genetic disorder that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Although often asymptomatic, symptoms may eventuate from compression of adjacent vessels or nerves, fractures, osseous deformities, bursa formation, or malignant transformation. Read More
