Myositis Ossificans. Presented by Dr. Eller for Dr. Sharpe.
A woman, aged 40, married, the mother of two children, presented bony-like subcutaneous, freely movable nodules, varying in size from that of a robin's egg to that of a walnut. These nodules were situated on both buttocks and on the left arm just below the shoulder, and had been present for ten months. There was a history of occasional pain in these lesions. No member of the family had been troubled with similar lesions. In 1923, the patient had had one kidney removed because of a stone and pus, and during the course of this treatment she had received injections to relieve the pain, and also for "tests" presumably to determine the functional activity of the kidney; but no injections were given at the sites of the nodules.A biopsy and roentgenograms were to be taken and would be reported on
