ESR_2012_Blog-CaceresCorner-590-CASE64

Dear Friends,

Muppet is getting old and feeble and, after more than one year of showing cases, is exhausted. He has decided to stop searching for exclusive cases and has decided to show only cases seen within the last two weeks. Hopes they are still worth presenting and will earn your approval. The first case, seen on April 15, is the PA chest radiograph of a 57-year-old woman with previous breast cancer, removed. What do you think of the anterior right fifth rib?

Diagnosis:

1. Metastases
2. Fibrous dysplasia
3. Paget’s disease
4. None of the above
