1. Unicameral (simple) bone cysts.
Match Strength: 8.188
Since their original description by Virchow, simple bone cysts have been studied repeatedly. Although these defects are not true neoplasms, simple bone cysts may create major structural defects of the humerus, femur, and os calcis. They are commonly discovered incidentally when x-rays are taken for other reasons or on presentation due to a pathologic fracture. Various treatment strategies have been employed, but the only reliable predictor of success of any treatment strategy is the age of the patient; those being older than 10 years of age heal their cysts at a higher rate than those under ...

2. Clinical role of Sm-153 EDTMP in the treatment of painful bone metastatic disease.
Match Strength: 5.394
PURPOSE: Sm-153 EDTMP is an effective treatment of painful bone metastases from different neoplasms. However, there are few studies describing clinical experience with this therapeutic modality. The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate the efficacy of Sm-153 EDTMP in a group of patients with skeletal metastases and poor pain control with conventional therapies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-four patients with painful bone metastases treated with Sm-153 EDTMP were retrospectively evaluated. Nine patients were treated twice. The most common primaries were breast in 28 cases (44%) and ... Read More »

3. Extra-osseous fat fluid level: a specific sign for osteomyelitis.
Match Strength: 4.901
Osteomyelitis may pose as a diagnostic dilemma on various imaging modalities and may be confused with neoplasms and other pathology. Although a rare finding, extra-osseous fat fluid level, especially when associated with spongy bone destruction, can be considered a specific sign of osteomyelitis. Previously, only two cases of extra-osseous fat fluid level in osteomyelitis have been reported, one on computed tomography (CT) and the other on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The former was a case of septic arthritis with intra-articular fat fluid level. A case of osteomyelitis is presented with ... Read More »

4. Evidence for increased clinical severity of familial and sporadic Paget's disease of bone in Campania, southern Italy.
Match Strength: 4.094
The analysis of 236 Italian patients with Paget's bone disease showed higher clinical severity and greater frequency of neoplastic degeneration among patients who live or descend from individuals living in the Campania region (southern Italy). A prevalent involvement of the spine and the skull, the sites preferentially involved in giant cell tumors complicating Paget's disease, was also shown in familial cases from this geographical region. INTRODUCTION: The Campania region in southern Italy has been recently indicated as a high prevalence area for Paget's disease of bone (PDB), and most ... Read More »
