    An owner sends me this rad.The horse is lame two months ago. The pus drains in the bulbs.

    What do you think? My money is in "sequestrum" or esferic keratoma

    Is it me or is the rad almost too light?

    Would it more likely be sequestrum than keratoma? I reckon the 'piece' looks dense enough to be bone. I thought that a keratoma didn't really show on a pic - the missing bone does (ie. doesn't).

    Happy to be corrected and looking forward to updates.

    I think he may have meant sequestrum (piece of dead bone), and may have just hit a home run.

    Edit to add: Maybe just a two run double - Gabino suggested sequestrum in his original post.:)
