Today we’ll be covering Bony Tumors, going along with this month’s theme, Oncology. If you haven’t listened to our podcast before, each week we have a case-based discussion about a medical topic to help you study for the pediatric medicine board exam. Episodes are released every weekend, and the case is then reviewed and reinforced on social media throughout the week.

Today’s Case:

A 15 year old female presents to your office with swelling and pain in the middle of her shin. She originally thought someone kicked her leg in soccer, but it has only gotten worse over the past few weeks. She was brought to the office because she is now having fevers, fatigue, and difficulty catching her breath. On palpation, her leg is tender and swollen but without bruising or erythema. You elect to get an X-ray of the affected leg and visualize a large area of destructive confluent lesions and elevated periosteum in the tibial diaphysis, consistent with where she is having pain. What is the most likely diagnosis for this child?

  1. Osteosarcoma
  2. Ewing Sarcoma
  3. Rhabdomyosarcoma
  4. Osteochondroma
  5. Osteomyelitis
