Abstract:
Bone infarction is an aseptic osteonecrosis localized to the metaphyses or diaphyses of the long bones, and sometimes flat bones, excluding epiphyseal osteonecrosis and small bones of the tarsus and carpus. The usual form is little or no pain. We report our observation, the metaphyso-diaphyseal bone infarction in a 53-year-old patient with a history of taking corticosteroids in the long run following a painful ankle, discovered late on X-ray which, showed irregular opacity.
