Discussion of Osteopathia striata
- AKA Voorhoeve disease
- Osteopathia striatum is a rare, benign dysplasia of bone, involving the epiphysis and metaphysis of tubular bones.
- It is typically bilateral, although occasionally it can be unilateral.
- There is an association with Goltz syndrome.
- Occurs at any age.
- The location is tubular bones, and the epicenter is centric. It has a benign, striated appearance.
- Osteopathia striatum is typically asymptomatic, although there can be associated joint discomfort.
- The differential diagnosis includes normal variation in the prominence of periarticular vertical trabeculation, adult osteopetrosis, and enchondromatosis.
 Imaging Findings for Osteopathia striata
- Radiographically prominent vertical striations predominate in the metaphyses and epiphyses of the long bones (celery stalk metaphysis).
