Abstract

An acetabular location of osteoid osteoma is rare and represents less than 1 % of cases. The purpose of this clinical case report is to highlight the unusual location of osteoid osteoma and the technical difficulty of its removal. We report a case of a 17-year-old Moroccan Arab boy who presented with pain in his right hip with lameness. The diagnosis of osteoid osteoma was made by imagery and confirmed by histological examination. The treatment consisted of a complete percutaneous resection scanno-guided of the nidus. The evolution was marked by complete healing with total and definitive disappearance of symptoms after 1 year. Osteoid osteoma of the acetabular roof is rare. The diagnosis is now easy because of the evolution of imaging. Treatment is exclusively surgical. Complete resection guarantees the absence of recurrence. The difficulty of the surgical procedure is due to the deep localization of the osteoid osteoma and because it is endosseous, it is also dangerous due to anatomical relationships and the small size of the osteoid osteoma.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 August 2016.
All research outputs
#9,071,166
of 11,329,665 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#934
of 1,684 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#184,174
of 260,652 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#33
of 84 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,329,665 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,684 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 260,652 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 84 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
