102 Possible Causes for Areas of Periosteal Reaction

  • Periostitis

    Radiographs of the right hand showed periosteal reaction with proliferative features involving multiple phalanges, and computed tomography scan showed nodular areas of periosteal[] The differential diagnosis included a periosteal reaction secondary to leukemia, infection-related periosteal apposition and drug-induced periostitis.[] reaction involving the bilateral ribs.[]

  • Rib Fracture

    A skeletal survey revealed generalized bone undermineralization as well as cupping and fraying of the long bones with areas of periosteal reaction.[]

  • Pathological Fracture

    […] of delineation, overlying cortex intact, sclerotic margins, no or simple periosteal reaction (See Figure 4) Malignant: multiple lesions often, poor delineation of lesion,[] These are often seen in young people who have bones on x-ray that are poorly defined with a periosteal reaction and matrix production in the area of tumor.[] Sometimes the cortical bone may be thickened due to a periosteal reaction (2) . MATERIAL AND METHOD The patient was a healthy 13-year-old male student.[]

  • Osteomyelitis

    These tests rule out the possibility of neoplastic or infectious lesions, while the images are useful for assessing the extent of the disease, reveal lytic areas and periosteal[] […] elevation Small single / multiple osteolytic areas in metaphysis Extensive periosteal reaction parallel to shaft (after 3-6 weeks) Shortening of bone with destruction of[] Periosteal reaction (continuous or interrupted) can be present.[]

  • Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis

    Short tau inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging (STIR MRI) shows bone marrow oedema, bone expansion, lytic areas and periosteal reaction.[] Characteristic imaging includes bone oedema, lytic areas, periosteal reaction and soft tissue reaction.[] An X-ray of his left femur showed a lytic area with periosteal reaction in the medial portion of distal femoral shaft.[]

  • Bone Lymphoma

    Periosteal reaction (continuous or interrupted) can be present.[] CT may reveal cortical and trabecular disruption, periosteal reaction, sequestra, and extraosseous extension.[] As regards the radiological appearance of bone lymphomas, there is a permeative or moth-eaten pattern, causing periosteal reaction.[]

  • Fibrosarcoma

    Periosteal reaction is uncommon, but if seen is usually laminated, spiculated or Codman triangles.[] The lesion usually has no matrix mineralization, but may have areas of sequestered bone.[]

  • Malignant Bone Neoplasm

    Lesions with malignancy potential • Medullary Bone Infarct sarcoma bone destruction in the area of the medullary infarct with periosteal reaction and soft-tissue mass confirm[] • Cortex is often thickened but periosteal reaction is scant or absent. • MRI can be helpful in delineating the extent of the tumour and establishing the presence of soft[] Regarding periosteal reaction, it is atypical with expanding radiolucent remodeling features, and sometimes, shows an aggressive appearance with cortical penetration and soft[]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Foot

    It was abnormal in 28/36 (78 %) revealing lytic lesions in 18 (50 %), areas of sclerotic bone in 19 (53 %) and periosteal reaction in 12 patients (33 %).[] IMAGING STUDIES IN COM Plain X rays Cortical destruction Periosteal reaction Sequestra Sinography 51. SINOGRAPHY 52.[] The classic radiographic triad for osteomyelitis is demineralisation periosteal reaction bone destruction.[]

  • Bone Tumor

    Periostitis A periosteal reaction will occur whenever the periosteum is irritated. This may occur due to a malignant tumor, benign tumor, infection or trauma.[] They are often associated with an aggressive appearing periosteal reaction (Codman’s triangle, lamellated or sunburst (arrow)) and a soft tissue mass. Figure 5(b).[] […] rapidly progressive, there mayonly be time for retreat (defense).If the process is slow growing, then the bonemay have time to mount an offense and try toform a sclerotic area[]
