Figure 2

A 12-year-old male patient. X-ray (a) and CT (b) show a bone destruction region with the size of about 34 mm × 32 mm × 29 mm in the anterior inferior margin of the right iliac bone near the acetabulum, with clear edges, local bone expansion, discontinuous cortical, uniform density, and a CT value of 41 HU. The histological appearance of the iliac bone destruction shows that there are fibrous connective tissue and bone tissue (red arrows indicate the site of iliac bone destruction).
