Abstract

The fibrous cortical defect is a common entity in children and the typical radiological image enables diagnosis. As these lesions are self-limited, no treatment is required. However, this lesion is not well known by pediatricians, which leads to an increased use of complementary tests and generates stress on patients and families. We present the case of a child with fibrous cortical defect recently diagnosed in our center.
