Metaphyseal fibrous defect
As with any fibrous bone lesion, care must be taken to rule out malignancy.
Management of asymptomatic, incidentally discovered metaphyseal fibrous defect generally calls for observation, as lesions tend to resolve as bones reach maturity. Pain or pathologic fracture may call for additional measures, including curettage and bone graft.
