Osteopoikilosis (osteopathia condensans disseminata) is a rare sclerosing bone dysplasia of unknown etiology.
It may occur in association with other types of sclerosing bone dysplasias such as osteopoikilosis and osteopathia striata (4) and with tumor-forming disease such as tuberous sclerosis and neurofibromatosis.
The radiological differential diagnosis include osteopoikilosis, osteopetrosis, arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, and osteopathia striata (11).
