IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
An 8-year-old boy fell from his bike sustaining a long oblique fracture through the shaft of the femur. AP radiograph of the femur taken two days later shows evidence of a fracture as well as periosteal lift suggestive of the diagnosis of pathological fracture through a Ewing’s sarcoma. The patient had symptoms of local pain two weeks prior to the fracture concurring with diagnosis of pathological fracture through a Ewing’s sarcoma. The periosteal changes are secondary to a stress fracture that occurred prior to the acute fracture and presents as a pseudotumor.
