A 65-year-old patient presents to you in general practice with a painful right lower leg. On questioning, he tells you that the pain has been present for a few months but he has not sought any medical advice for it. His past medical history is significant only for type 2 diabetes, for which he is on insulin. On examination he appears systemically well. Examination of the right lower limb shows a curvature of the tibia with overlying erythema, and palpation reveals it to be much warmer than the left leg.

Which ONE of the following conditions is the patient suffering from?

  1. A  Osteomyelitis

  2. B  Paget’s disease

  3. C  Sarcoma

  4. D  Skeletal metastasis

  5. E  Charcot’s joint
