Caffey's disease is not a common clinical occurrence; it often poses problems in diagnosis due to its close resemblance to osteomyelitis. Initial plain radiographic diagnosis is sometimes fraught with the limitation of not being able to differentiate it from chronic osteomyelitis. Skeletal scintigraphy is sensitive in localizing the disease activity to the radiological features of the affected regions and the characteristic location of the lesions helps make the diagnosis without resorting to biopsy and further workup.
