Osteochondritis of the Elbow-MRI
There is evidence of osteochondral defect in capitulum with associated bony fragment in relation to the humeroradial articulation. There is evidence of ossification in relation to the medial collateral ligament. OCD is a localized fragmentation of the bone and overlying cartilage of the capitellum; it frequently progresses to loose body formation, and sometimes progresses to posttraumatic arthritis; laxity of the medial collateral ligament may accentuate the loading on the capitellum.
