Skeletal abnormalities of eight patients with Satoyoshi's syndrome, a rare condition of unknown etiology characterized by progressive muscle spasms, alopecia, and diarrhea, were studied radiographically. Various skeletal changes were observed including metaphyseal lesions, slipping of multiple epiphyses, cystic lesions, acroosteolysis and osteolysis, bone fragmentation at tendinous insertions, fatigue fractures, and early osteoarthrosis. This wide range of lesions is likely to be due to repeated injuries to the growth plates, epiphyses, and tendon attachments in the growing skeleton caused by recurrent vigorous muscle spasms.
