A 9-year-old boy presented with a 3-week history of left hip pain. Four weeks prior, the patient had suffered a superficial injury to his abdomen, which required a subcutaneous suture.
At admission, he had intermittent fever. He was reluctant to bear weight on his left limb and had gait disturbances. Plain-film pelvic radiographs performed in the emergency room were suspicious for a bone tumor of the left ischium. CT, bone scintigraphy, and MRI examinations were requested to rule out bone tumor.
