Abstract

SAPHO syndrome is a group of bone and joint abnormalities associated with skin lesions. A 29-year-old male presented with severe acne on his trunk and anterior chest wall, right knee and foot pain. Radiographs and magnetic resonance images showed hyperostosis in the sternocostoclavicular region, sclerosis of one-third of the right distal 5th metatarsal bone and bony outgrowth from the medial condyle of the right femur .The histological findings of the biopsy specimen were consistent with those of old osteomyelitis. All fungal and microbacterial cultures were negative. Pain and swelling of the right knee and foot repeated remission and aggravation. There were no radiological changes of the above-mentioned lesions noted within 4-years follow-up.
