Radiologic vignette: primary disorders of articular cartilage in childhood

J Rheumatol. 1988;15(5):812-9.

Abstract

We discuss several less well recognized disorders of articular cartilage which may affect pediatric patients, including relapsing polychondritis, idiopathic chondrolysis of the hip and chondrolysis after slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Idiopathic osteolysis is not considered in our review because it has been well described previously.
