Imaging Procedures and Findings
Plain radiograph taken from both hands shows multiple small, round sclerotic lesions involving carpal, metacarpal and phalangeal bones.
Osteopoikilosis is an hereditary, asymptomatic disorder that is usually an incidental finding of multiple small (3 to 10 mm) sclerotic bony densities affecting primarily the ends of long bones and the pelvis. It has no clinical significance other than that it can be confused for diffuse osteoblastic metastases.
