OLIVEIRA, Paulo Cesar Rocha et al. Gorham's disease of scapula and clavicle: case report and two-year follow-up of a rare disorder. Radiol Bras [online]. 2011, vol.44, n.5, pp.336-338. ISSN 1678-7099.

Gorham's disease is a rare osteolytic disorder of still controversial etiology that may affect any bone. The histopathological substrate for such a condition is the replacement of normal bone by aggressive non-neoplastic expansile vascular tissue. The authors describe radiographic, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings in a case of this entity initially affecting the left scapula and, two years later, the ipsilateral clavicle.

Keywords : Gorham's disease; Massive osteolysis; Computed tomography; Magnetic resonance imaging.
