What’s your Diagnosis?

In this feature, AAOS Now publishes a series of images, challenging readers to diagnose the condition depicted.

The images for this month’s challenge were submitted by Nicholas Larsen, MD, a resident member at the University of Tennessee-Campbell Clinic. Dr. Larsen also provided the following information:

The patient is a 7-year-old girl with a 1-month history of increasing pain in her left leg. The pain increases when she spends long periods on her feet and resolves with rest. She does not have pain at rest. Both the child and her parents deny any trauma. What’s your diagnosis?
