Same images as in Figure I, with the exception of a close-up of the ventrodorsal thoracic radiographic image (D). A and B—The distal region of the left femur has evidence of severe, locally extensive permeative and moth-eaten lysis (thick arrows) with a long zone of transition that extends to the proximal aspect of the diaphysis, and there is moderate swelling of the surrounding soft tissue. The femur also has evidence of an expansile, solid, and relatively smooth periosteal reaction (arrowheads) distally and a pathological fracture (thin arrows) in the distal aspect of the diaphysis with mild craniocaudal displacement. C and D—The first sternebra has evidence of locally extensive, moth-eaten lysis and a faint amorphous periosteal reaction (brackets). There is a well-defined nodule (circle) in the area of the left caudal lung lobe. The proximal aspect of the right eighth rib has a focal lytic lesion with cortical thinning and expansion with interrupted periosteal reaction (square) evident on the ventrodorsal projection (D) but difficult to appreciate on the right lateral projection (C).
