Children are diagnosed on average around 3 years old. As seen in this case, bony growths (exostoses) arise from the metaphyses, point away from epiphysis, and extend down the diaphysis during growth. They increase in size and number with age, arising in several characteristic sites. Over 90 per cent of cases are at the distal and proximal tibia, proximal femur and proximal humerus. Ribs, scapula, radius, ulna, ilium and phalanges are also common sites. 2 AP radiograph of both legs showing large right proximal and distal lateral tibial exostoses and bilateral proximal medial tibial exostoses (see arrows).
There is a background of generalized involutional change in keeping with the patient’s age, and some hemispheric white matter low attenuation suggestive of small vessel disease. Within the right fontal lobe there is a wedge-shaped area of low attenuation with loss of the normal grey/white matter differentiation and extension to the cortical surface. There is mass effect with the adjacent sulci effaced, but no evidence of midline shift or hydrocephalus. There is no evidence of haemorrhage or mass lesion.
51 ANSWER 18 Headache is a common problem, often assessed in general practice and often associated with tumours by patients. The annual incidence of brain tumours is about 10 per 100 000 per year whereas up to 4000 per 100000 GP consultations are for headache, so some discrimination has to be used to avoid imaging every patient. If you see papilloedema then red flags are not required, urgent investigation is mandatory, after checking your records for previous investigation – very occasionally it is idiopathic and chronic.
