It starts in metaphysis and mostly present proximal humerus and femur but in adults ileum and calcaneum
are common sites.30 It is asymptomatic but can present with a fracture.
However this study used ultrasound to measure BMD of calcaneum
which is not gold standard for measuring BMD.
Then the foot is abducted to 70 degrees to correct first the forefoot abduction and then by the transmitted force to the calcaneum
the hindfoot inversion.

(a) Conventional karyotype on the bone tumor (calcaneum
): 46,XY,add(2)(q?21),der(3)t(2;3) (q?21;q?21),-8,-19,+mar1,+mar2.
Plain radiographs of the left ankle showed a 3-centimeter oval lytic lesion in the anterior aspect of the calcaneum
A patient presented with a history of a weekend of ski touring which resulted in crippling pain just above the calcaneum
. He admitted to wearing too tight ski boots.
(7) The X-ray findings are fairly nonspecific and usually show an osteolytic lesion with occasional evidence of central sequestration seen in cases involving calcaneum
. (3) The absence of any specific radiographic features of infection in bone and joints leads to difficulty in the diagnosis of the localized lesion.

. J Bone Joint Surg Br 1992; 74:906-9.
The second suture anchor was inserted in the distal point of calcaneum
resection surface (Knot 2).
The following bones were reviewed for the presence of bone marrow oedema and fracture in all 3 imaging planes: 1st to 5th proximal phalanges; medial and lateral sesamoids; 1st to 5th metatarsals; medial, middle, and lateral cuneiforms; navicular, cuboid, talus, and calcaneum
; distal tibial plafond; and medial and lateral malleoli.
