Answer

Outpatient care of a child with PFD depends on the severity and location of the lesions. Vision and hearing should be closely monitored if lesions are located near the orbit or bones surrounding the middle and inner ear. Progressive deformities or increasing pain at other sites may indicate pathologic fractures and warrant evaluation by a pediatric orthopedist.
