OM hand

This patient had an ulcerative, indurated lesion to the distal thumb which can be seen on the above radiograph.  The radiograph also demonstrates periostitis and osseous erosion of the distal thumb and metacarpal joint of the thumb.  There are subtle periosteal changes to the third phalanx as well.

It turns out this patient has sporothrix schenkii osteomyelitis.
