Benign latent bone lesions

Benign latent lesions have generally been active at some time in the past, but they show evidence of healing at the time of evaluation. Examples include adult osteochondromas and non-ossifying fibromas.

  • During childhood, these lesions may have grown rapidly (osteochondromas during the adolescent growth spurt, for example), or may have substantially weakened the bone (non-ossifying fibromas can cause pathologic fractures).
  • In adults, however, these lesions have  well-organized, corticated margins and show no evidence of bone destruction or lesional growth.
  • Latent lesions are usually incidental findings that generally do not cause symptoms.
