Primary idiopathic osteolysis (massive osteolysis, essential osteolysis, progressive atrophy of bone, spontaneous absorption of bone, phantom bone) is an extremely rare occurrence. This disorder is characterised by spontaneous or post traumatic bone resorption of uncertain etiology with unpredictable prognosis, and any effective therapy is largely unknown (1). We report the clinico-radiological features of a 10-year-old male patient with this condition, and present a short review of the available literature.
