Figure 1: Skeletal survey (initial hospitalization): Lateral radiograph of the skull (a) shows increased density of the skull base (white arrows) and diffusely increased density of the temporal bones (black arrow). The radiograph of the chest (b) shows diffusely increased bone density of the spine and the ribs. Notice the normal aeration of the lung and normal configuration of the heart. The frontal radiograph of the skull (c) shows elevated orbital roofs with increased density (arrows). The frontal radiographs of the pelvis and the femurs (d) show diffusely increased density and loss of medullary cavity. The frontal radiograph of the right tibia and fibula (e) shows absent medullary cavity and diffusely increased bone density. Notice the metaphyseal flaring and irregularity (arrows)
