There is also periosteal thickening, endosteal scalloping, and fluffy calcifications in the distal femur.

Fine needle aspiration of the left femur was consistent with sickle cell disease. No organisms were seen on special stains. Discussion Patients with sickle cell anemia are susceptible to infarction in the bone and bone marrow.
