Osteopoikilosis, a form of osteosclerotic disorders, is a rare bone dysplasia with typical radiologic findings. The pathology, which sometimes requires attention in differential diagnosis due to its radiologic appearance, has been reported previously with other diseases. In this report, a case diagnosed with both reactive arthritis and osteopoikilosis will be presented and current arguments about its differential diagnosis and pathophysiology and concomitant disorders shall be discussed.
