Title
Panners disease : the vacuum phenomenon revisited
Author
Abstract
A seven-year-old boy presented with pain in his left elbow with a subtle swelling following a fall. There was a limited range of motion, mostly an extension deficit of the elbow. Conventional radiography (CR) of the left elbow (Figure 1) revealed joint effusion (asterisk) and irregular delineation of the articular contour of the capitellum with a radiolucent line in the subchondral bone (black arrows). There was also faint sclerosis of the capitellum (white arrows). Subsequent cone beam computed tomography (CT) (Figure 2) depicted a crescent-shaped subchondral vacuum phenomenon in the capitellum (black arrows). The diagnosis of Panners disease was made and the patient was treated conservatively, with rest, temporary immobilization and subsequent remobilization. The clinical follow-up was uneventful.
