1/107. Stress-induced SAPHO syndrome.

    We describe the case of a woman with the classic combination of features of synovitis-acne-pustulosis-hyperostosis-osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome, including pustulosis palmo-plantaris and anterior chest wall involvement. The varying symptomology, etiology and pathogenesis of this syndrome and the contribution of stress are discussed. The authors ascribe the dearth of reported cases to lack of awareness and recognition of SAPHO, and not to the real incidence of the syndrome. ( info)

2/107. A case with Weaver syndrome operated for congenital cardiac defect.

    An 11-month-old Turkish female infant with Weaver syndrome together with atrial septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus which was operated successfully is reported. Weaver syndrome is a very rare disorder of unknown etiology characterized by accelerated growth of prenatal onset, advanced osseous maturation, special craniofacial features, umbilical hernia, and hoarse low-pitched cry. Congenital cardiac defect is not a usual finding. The presented case is the first reported child with Weaver syndrome in the literature operated for a congenital cardiac defect. ( info)

3/107. hyperostosis generalisata with striations of the bones: report of a female case and a review of the literature.

    We report on a 70-year-old woman with generalized skeletal alterations, characterized by marked diaphyseal expansion of the long bones and coarse striations of the trabeculae of the tubular bones, ribs, pelvis and vertebral bodies. These findings were consistent with hyperostosis genralisata with striations of the bones, first described by Fairbank. biopsy of the femur revealed a featureless sclerosed bone. This is the first report of a female patient with this rare sclerosing bone dysplasia. ( info)

4/107. An unusual cause of trismus.

    This paper reports a case of limited mandibular movement caused by the rare condition of bilateral coronoid hyperplasia. Dental surgeons should be aware of the possibility of this condition when encountering patients with movement problems in the mandible. ( info)

5/107. Parosteal lipoma with hyperostosis.

    A case of parosteal lipoma of the femur combined with hyperostosis is presented. The parosteal lipoma is a rare benign tumor containing adipose tissue and is intimately related to the periosteum. We report the MRI features and correlative pathologic findings of a parosteal lipoma. The MRI technique is useful for evaluating the relationship between the periosteum and the lipoma. ( info)

6/107. A case report of subpontic osseous hyperplasia in the maxillary arch.

    Subpontic osseous hyperplasia has been portrayed in both the historical and the current literature as occurring exclusively in the mandibular posterior region. This article presents the clinical, radiologic, and microscopic documentation of subpontic osseous hyperplasia occurring in the maxillary first molar region. ( info)

7/107. Dysgenesis of corpus callosum in Lenz-Majewski hyperostotic dwarfism.

    Lenz-Majewski hyperostotic dwarfism is an extremely rare syndrome with moderate to severe mental retardation and no previously identified brain abnormalities. We describe the seventh case and note dysgenesis of the corpus callosum in this patient. ( info)

8/107. A case report of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis syndrome presenting with spondylodiscitis.

    SAPHO syndrome stands for synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis. The common site of skeletal lesions in this syndrome is the sternocostoclavicular area. Spondylodiscitis is rarely described in published studies. In general, skin lesions develop before the onset of skeletal lesions. We report a case of SAPHO syndrome in which spondylodiscitis developed more than 1 year before the onset of pustulosis. ( info)

9/107. Hyperostotic macrodactyly and lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

    A new case with 14-year follow-up of an extremely rare variety of congenital hand macrodactyly is presented. The disease characteristically presents a diffuse proliferation of fibrofatty tissue, but in this special type, osteocartilaginous deposits around the joints can also be found. The case presented included the troublesome feature of a lipofibromatous hamartoma in the median nerve at the wrist and its branches producing carpal tunnel syndrome. The patient obtained benefit from carpal tunnel release and epineurolysis. The hyperostotic development was managed with conservative resection of the periarticular osteochondromas. The literature reviewed suggests that the hyperostotic cases of macrodactyly do not differ from general cases of this congenital condition, except for the osteochondral deposits. These tumours develop during adulthood or after previous trauma, before epiphyseal closure. ( info)

10/107. Basithoracic pain as first manifestation of pustulotic arthro-osteitis.

    We report the case of a woman with atypical anterior basithoracic pain as only initial symptom of pustulotic arthro-osteitis. early diagnosis was made only after development inferior lumbar pain, some months later. At that time, the radiological investigations revealed the osteoarticular counterpart of pustulotic arthro-osteitis. ( info)
