Case contributed by Dr Saqba Farooq


Right hip pain.


Relatively well defined area of lucency (with somewhat hazy lateral border) in the upper aspect of right acetabulam. No obvious calcification within. No septation. The abnormality does not have a sclerotic border. No definite cortical breach. 


The lesion is better seen on this coronal CT. No definite cortical breach or periosteal reaction. Superolateral aspect of the lesion has chondroid pattern of calcification. 


The lesion is of high signal on T2, low on T1 and shows heterogenous contrast enhancement.
