Symptomatology In 1968, and also in 1974, Serre and Simon [747, 753] proposed the hypothesis of an algodystrophic factor playing a part in the aggravation of an up to then quiescent rarefying osteopathy. They thereby rehabilitated the Kiimmell-Verneuil syndrome insofar as they reconsidered Verneuil's hypothesis concerning the existence of microfractures aggravated by bodyweight.

8-10) Thinning of the diaphyseal cortical layers on the hand and the foot is a characteristic sign. There is usually subperiosteal resorption responsible for irregular lysis of the external limits of the cortical bone, producing an undulated appearance of the edges of the shaft. This appearance is similar to that encountered in mild 33 Radiology forms of fibrous osteitis in primary hyperparathyroidism. Endosteal resorption is characterized by a scalloped internal borderline communicating with the medullary space, producing an extremely irregular and rough endosteal surface with marked variations in the thickness of the cortical layer.

Pressure on the articular interspace and bone extremities is painful. A discreet layer of hydrarthrosis is frequently present (14 cases out of Serre's 35). Amyotrophy of the thigh is noted two times in three, and of the calf one time in three. One can even observe limitation of the extension movement with an irreducible antalgic flexed attitude.
