Abstract 

The authors describe the MR features of a case of microgeodic phalangeal syndrome in a 9-year-old boy. Roentgenograms showed multiple small areas of osteolysis in the middle phalanx of the right index finger. T1-weighted MR images showed lesions with diffuse low signal intensity not only in this phalanx but also in other phalanges. These lesions exhibited high signal intensity on T2-weighted images. Contrast- enhanced T1-weighted images showed a wide non-enhancing area in the middle phalanx of the index finger.
