In this series of images, the letter A points to a lytic lesion in the right iliac (hip) bone. The letter B is an MRI scan showing the bone marrow edema (swelling) of the involved iliac bone. This was proved to be osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone marrow and adjacent bone). The letter C points to a similar lesion that appeared in the left scapula (shoulder blade) a few months later. This is a Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis (CRMO).
