Abstract

J.E. first presented at 3 1/2 years of age. He had been noted since 1 month of age to have a mass in the proximal part of the right forearm. He had not had any injury at that time, and the mass was not tender. He was seen by a physician, and over a period of several months three casts were applied to his arm. At the end of that time, the arm appeared the same, and no further treatment was given. Currently he has no complaints relative to the arm and uses it well. The physical examination was normal except for the right upper extremity. The patient did not have any cafe-au-lait spots, and there were no skin abnormalities over the arm. He had full flexion, extension, pronation, and supination of the elbow. The palpable mass over the lateral aspect of the right forearm moved with radial motion. There appeared to be slight radial deviation of the wrist, and he had no tenderness. Radiographs are illustrated as Figure 1. At this time, we would ask our consultant, Dr. Roach, for a possible diagnosis and treatment.
