This AP radiograph of the hip joint in a 38-year-old male reveals a blastic lesion in the outer neck of the femur suggesting the diagnosis of a possible burn-out osteoid osteoma plus a second blastic lesion located in the wing of the sacrum without a nidus in the central area. These lesions were picked up as incidental findings for X-rays taken looking for trauma. These are bone islands looking a bit like osteoid osteomas.
