A case of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy is described in an 8-year-old child with late-onset agammaglobulinemia, bronchiectasis and clubbing of the fingers and toes. The child presented with pain of recent onset in the legs, ankles, and knees and a diagnosis of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy was made on the basis of the radiologic findings. Therefore the differential diagnosis of bone and joint pain in agammaglobulinemic subjects must take into account hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.
