Apple core sign – describes a short segment irregular circumferential stricture of the large bowel that has abrupt “shouldered” margins resembling an apple core. The appearance is classically described on contrast enema studies and is almost always due to a stenosing annular colon carcinoma. The same term has also been used for the circumferential erosion of the femoral neck seen in synovial osteochondromatosis.
