Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare inherited disorder that is manifest clinically by digital clubbing extremity enlargement, painful and swollen joints, hypertrophic skin changes, and periosteal bone formation. This report illustrates the skeletal findings that may be seen with long-standing disease as evaluated with conventional radiography and with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, with emphasis on the MR appearance of periosteal reaction in this disorder. There are features that suggest pachydermoperiostosis may represent a generalized enthesopathy.
