The use of radioactive agents and skeleton scans to locate bone lesions, to investigate bone pain, and to clarify the nature of osseous disease have drawn growing interest in the past decade.

Although hip involvement is most striking in this syndrome and was the feature that first called our attention to the condition (3), other joints may be involved in some patients, and the full definition of this syndrome awaits further study.
