Van Neck-Odelberg disease is considered a benign skeletal developmental abnormality seen in children, comprising hyperostosis of the ischiopubic synchondrosis (IPS). During skeletal development, typically there is unilateral and asymmetric enlargement of the IPS of no pathological relevance. Nevertheless, in spite of being considered a physiological phenomenon, some children can be clinically symptomatic and experience unspecific groin pain and limping. Importantly, the diagnosis of IPS opsteochondritis cannot be established by radiographic findings solely and needs to be supported by the appropriate clinical scenario and by the exclusion of other causes such as neoplasia, stress fracture, osteomyelitis, and post-traumatic osteolysis. The role of imaging is essentially to exclude these causes.
