Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare form of hypophosphatemia usually caused by phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors (PMTs); the biologic behavior of PMTs is under investigation. Herein we present a case of TIO with a protracted course over 12 years leading to a fatal outcome. A 39-year-old man presented with weakness in 2004 and was found to have decreased serum phosphorus, phosphaturia and low levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3. Four years later he developed a painful left calf mass. The lesion was resected, but recurred causing extreme pain and dysfunction...

Cleidocranial dysplasia is a developmental anomaly of the skeleton and the teeth. This condition may be inherited and be transmitted as dominant characteristics in either gender, or may appear spontaneously. It presents with skeletal defects of several bones, such as partial or complete absence of clavicles, late closure of the fontanels, presence of open skull sutures and multiple wormian bones. The dental manifestations are mainly delayed exfoliation of primary teeth and delayed eruption of permanent teeth with multiple impacted supernumerary teeth...

Interest in feline osteoarthritis has grown recently; this might be due to increased prevalence or increased awareness. This study records the presence of appendicular osteoarthritis in a subset of the United Kingdom cat population in the 1970s and estimates its prevalence. One hundred cats euthanized in 1972-1973 had a series of skeletal radiographic images taken post mortem. Each joint was put into a set with or without osteoarthritis according to the presence or absence of a specified set of radiographic features...

Surgical repair of articular cartilage defects in the knee currently utilizes surgical algorithms based on absolute defect size. These algorithms, which have not been validated, are currently utilized not only by surgeons but also by insurance carriers for justification of reimbursement policy. However, current algorithms do not account for morphological differences between individual patients and defect size relative to condylar dimension. We hypothesized that a significant difference in relative defect size compared with condylar dimension may exist between individuals...

REVIEW
Hadeel Alrukban, David Chitayat
Chondrodysplasia punctata (CDP) is a skeletal abnormality characterized by premature calcification that is usually noticeable in the prenatal period and infancy. Etiologically, the condition is heterogeneous, and the causes include fetal conditions such as chromosome abnormalities, peroxisomal disorders, lysosomal storage disorders, cholesterol synthesis defects and abnormal vitamin K metabolism, as well as maternal diseases such as severe malabsorption and exposure to teratogens. An association between CDP and maternal autoimmune disease was first observed and reported by Curry et al and Costa et al in 1993 and expanded by Chitayat et al in 2010...

Joint replacements have proved a medical success providing symptomatic relief and return to mobility in many patients with arthritis. However, multiple revision surgeries due to joint failure can result in complex revision scenarios with significant bone tissue loss, in an elderly population, which poses a significant clinical challenge. Computer-aided design-computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD-CAM) prototyped bespoke implants are currently being used as an alternative and innovative approach for joint restoration in salvage cases, while the incorporation of autologous skeletal stem cells to optimize regenerative capacity can enhance implant osseointegration...

INTRODUCTION: Due to demographic changes, growing demands, technological developments and rising healthcare costs, analysis of resources in rural and urban primary care clinics is crucial. However, data on primary care provision in rural and suburban areas are lacking. Moreover, health inequities in small island communities tend to be reduced by social homogeneity and an almost indiscernible urban-rural difference. The aim of the study was to examine the urban-suburban differences in the indications for lumbosacral spine radiographs in a public primary healthcare centre in Malta...

Spondylo-megaepiphyseal-metaphyseal dysplasia (SMMD) is an autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia, characterized by disproportionate short stature with a short and stiff neck and trunk. SMMD is caused by inactivating mutations in NKX3-2, which encodes a homeobox-containing protein. Because of the rarity of the disorder, the diagnostic feature has not been fully established yet. We describe an affected newborn with dysmorphic facial features and severe short trunk. The patient required immediate intubation at the delivery room and duodenal atresia was detected during his course in neonatal intensive care unit...

Study of disease in the past can help illuminate patterns of human health, disease, and aging in the present. As average human life expectancy and incidence of chronic disease have increased in the last century, efforts to understand this epidemiologic shift have led to more investigation of healthy aging. Using osteological and radiological methods of analysis, this study examined 212 mostly nineteenth century adult skeletons from the crypt of St. Bride's in London, in order to investigate the relationship between age-at-death, sex, and number of lesions observed in bone...

Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease involving reduced bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue. The use of dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for evaluating bone mass in geriatric patients is well established. However, radiologic technologists also might conduct DXA examinations on younger adults and children. This article discusses diagnosis of osteoporosis and alternative indications for clinical use of DXA.

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a common skeletal disorder whereby genetic factors play a role in etiology. Multiple genes have been reported to be associated with the occurrence of DDH. WISP3 gene was found to be a causative gene for progressive pseudorheumatoid dysplasia (PPD). Reports of WISP3 gene in association with DDH are lacking. We conducted a case-control candidate gene association study enrolling three hundred and eighty-six patients with radiology confirmed DDH and 558 healthy controls...

Osteoarticular or skeletal tuberculosis is a clinical manifestation of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, occurring during the lympho-hematogenous spread of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from a pulmonary primary infection or reactivation of latent infection, years or even decades after the initial infection. Bone and joint tuberculosis is a rare disease with non-specific symptoms and radiological characteristics, often delaying diagnosis for more than a year after clinical onset. First-line hospital departments should develop a clinical suspicion when confronted with a subacute inflammatory bone or joint pathology in patients with underlying comorbidities, especially when coming from tuberculosis-endemic countries...

Older men who participated in a sporting activity were less likely to sustain any fracture or major osteoporotic fracture over a 6-year follow-up period. PURPOSE: Regular weight-bearing physical activity can reduce fracture risk through an increase in bone strength, as well as reducing falls risk by improving muscle strength and balance. In this study, we aimed to determine whether a specific type of physical activity, sports participation, reduces fracture risk in older Australian men...
