Myositis ossificans in an infant

Acta Orthop Belg. 1996 Sep;62(3):177-9.

Abstract

We report a 15-month-old girl with myositis ossificans at the shoulder. Because of the unusual presentation at this age the differential diagnosis with osteomyelitis or a tumoral process had to be considered. It had a benign evolution without specific treatment.
