Detailed X ray
X rays show a sclerotic lesion with a lytic centre crossing the proximal tibial growth plate. This may be an illusion due to the sloping nature of this growth plate - the lesion is in the metaphysis adjacent to teh physis.
The lesion was curetted and debrided. Histology showed chronic grannulation tissue.
Postoperative antibiotics were prescribed.
