    A 16-year-old male complains of pain around his knee joint for 3 months. Physical examination shows no findings except local pain around knee joint over the area of the distal end of the femur. Radiograph shows an ill-defined mass involving the distal end of the femur along with the elevation of periosteum.

  • 9. 
    A 10-year-old boy has complained of sudden onset of nocturnal pain in his left leg around the knee. The pain is relieved dramatically by aspirin. Nothing remarkable is seen on physical examination. The radiograph shows a well defined 1 cm lucent area surrounded by a thin rim of bony sclerosis located in the proximal tibia cortex. He undergoes curettage and the pain doesn’t return. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?
    • A. 

      Enchondroma

    • B. 

      Osteoid osteoma

    A 75-year-old man complains of pain in his right hip and thigh for the past several months. His range of motion is reduced in the hip but there is no tenderness or swelling. Radiographs show thickened cortical bone with a narrowed joint space. A bone biopsy shows a mosaic pattern of the lamellar bone with the appearance shown. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?
    • A. 

      Osteochondroma

    • B. 

      Osteoarthritis

    A 28-year-old male comes to his GP because of persistent pain in the area around his right knee. The area is firm, no erythema but tender on palpation. X–ray exam shows a 6 cm mass in his distal femoral epiphyseal area, with a soap bubble appearance. A bone biopsy shows multinucleated cell in a stroma composed of spindle shaped mononuclear cells. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?
    • A. 

      Ewing’s sarcoma

    • B. 

      Osteoblastoma

    • C. 

      Enchondrooma

  • 12. 
    A 13-year-old boy complains of pain in his left lower leg for the past month. On examination, there is tenderness to palpation on the site, and the circumference of his left leg is more than the right leg. A radiograph of the leg shows a 6 cm expansile mass in the diaphyseal region of the left lower femur, with the characteristic “onion peel” appearance. A biopsy of the mass shows sheets of closely packed primitive cells with small relatively uniform nuclei and only scant cytoplasm. Karyotype analysis of the tumor shows a t(11;22) translocation. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?
    • A. 

      Chondrosarcoma

    • B. 

      Ewing's sarcoma

    • C.

    • E. 

      Fibrous dysplasia

  • 13. 
    A 42-year-old man on holiday is involved in an accident in which he sustains a right tibial diaphyseal fracture. The fracture is set with open reduction and internal fixation for proper alignment. One week later there are more osteoclasts in the region of the fracture. Which of the following is the most likely function of these osteoclasts?
    • A. 

      Form collagen

    • B. 

      Resorb bone

    • C. 

      Synthesise osteoid

      Divide

  • 14. 
    A 10-year-old boy has pain in the right hip for the past three weeks. On physical examination, his temperature is 38.2°C. There is swelling with marked tenderness to palpation in the region and reduced range of movement. Radiographs of the pelvis show areas of osteolysis and cortical erosion involving the femoral metaphysis with adjacent soft tissue swelling in the sub-periosteal region, and apparent abscess formation. Which of the following organisms is most likely to produce these findings?
    • A. 

      Staphylococcus aureus

    • B. 

      Haemophilus influenzae

    • C. 

      Salmonella enteritidis

    • D. 

      Group B Streptococcus
