In the treatment of the condition known as myositis ossificans traumatica, the necessity of operation in cases of non-absorption and disability is stressed.

Comparison of the pathological findings showed a predominant number of giant or osteoclastic cells in the case in which absorption took place, while not one of these cells was present in the case demanding operation. These pathological pictures clearly parallel the clinical observations.
