Tibial stress fracture

AP (A, C) and lateral (B, D) radiographs of the tibia and fibula show a subtle periosteal new bone formation at the posteromedial aspect of the right tibial shaft (A-D, white arrows). There is also a oblique oriented lucent line in the posterior cortex of the distal right tibial midshaft (black arrows), compatible with a stress fracture.
