Treagle (talk) 15:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC) The last couple of edits seem to have removed some useful background information regarding the origins of the name for this syndrome, and also to have introduced some tagging / format errors. I don't have enough experience of either the subject, the referenced content or the tagging / format controls to attempt this without screwing up. Anyone else? I'll look back again when I get some time and flag the entry for changes.
Please, Rewrite for Ordinary Reader
After reading this article, I know exactly as much as before reading it. Can someone who understands the subject and knows how to make it comprehensible to ordinary folk please rewrite it? Many Thanks!!! Tapered (talk) 20:42, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
- Not a rewrite, but added this to the first paragraph: "It is characterized by painful lumps just below the knee and is most often seen in young adolescents."Ortolan88 (talk) 22:41, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
Removed, but funny enough to memorialize in the talk page
- This disease is also called a 3rd knee, a nob or "splaggies".Ortolan88 (talk) 22:32, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
Removed but not funny
I took out the synonym "knee cancer". There really is a cancer of the knee and O-S has nothing to do with it. This reference would be confusing. Furthermore, the confusion could be dangerous. See here, cancer mistaken for O-S []. Perhaps there should be a section discussing "growing pains" and possible misdiagnosis, but I don't believe "knee cancer" has ever been a synonym for O-S.
