The article focuses on the case of a 28-year-old man presented with epigastric pain after an intake of alcohol, who was diagnosed of having osteopoikilosis in the pelvic region as supported by normal radionuclide bone scan, rheumatoid factor, and alkaline phosphatase and was symptom-free of sclerotic lesions after one year of follow-up.
