Late Xray when growth disturbance was a problem
Late xrays of the healing lesion of the distal femur. A large portion of the metaphysis was destroyed on the medial side. As a result the patient had to undergo an ephyseodesis of the opposite side to check leg length discrepancy. Benign childhood tumours often are near the growth plate and sometimes algulatory ot length growth disturbances result.
