Abstract

We report two cases of polyostotic eosinophilic granuloma (EG). Both plain radiographs and CT showed diffuse osteolytic lesions which suggested malignant tumors. Although EG was polyostotic, the prognosis was relatively good. Both cases developed new lesions over a follow-up period of 4-5 years and therefore further long-term review is needed.
