Develpomental bone disorders include achondroplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta and ________.
Achondroplasia cuases dwarfism, a defect in endochondral ossification. It is autosomal dominant and caused by a mutation in ________, a gene coding for collagen.
Why are flat bones (eg. Calvarium) not affected by achondroplasia?
flat = intramembranous not endochondal ossification

Risk factors of osteoporosis include: = Female (Asian), __________, inactivity, heredity and dietary deficiency. T/F
post-menopausal *also excessive corticosteroids
Diagnosis of osteoporosis is made via bone ____ tests and _____. Treatment includes biphosphonates (dec. osteoclast activity), calcitonin, Ca+ and ________ supplementation.
density, x-rays, estrogen
Inadequate bone mineralization due to a vitamin D disturbances (affects phosphate/Ca+ metabolism) in _______ is termed osteomalacia and in children ________.
adults, rickets
Reduced absorption of Ca+ and PO4 lowers serum levels. The body compensates for this by releasing _____ causing resorption of bone.
PTH --> inc Ca+(serum) along with inc renal Ca+ retention and excretion of PO4.
Rachitic rosary, craniotabes, bow legs and fractures are endochondral ossification disturbances due to _______.
Osteomalacia --> soft bones, fractures and muscle weakness due to?
decreased serum Ca+
______ dental eruption and ______ mineralized teeth are caused by Rickets.
delayed, poorly
List in order from most to least common etiologies of hyperparathyroidism: parathyroid - hyperplasia, adenoma, carcinoma and chronic renal disease.
parathyroid-- 1. adenoma 2. hyperplasia 3. carcinoma ****chronic renal is a secondary cause
Clinical signs of hyperparathyroidism include renal stones, painful bones (cysts, __________ - giant cell aggregates), ________ moans (ulcers) and psychic groans (seizures) do to Ca+/PO4 imbalance.
brown tumors of hyperPTH, abdominal
_____________ could be the first manefestation of hyperfarathyroidism.
CGCG central giant cell granuloma
Treatment for hyperthyroid includes surgical removal of the affected gland (neoplasia) or 3-4 glands due to ______.
A 45 year old British patient presents with thick skull, deafness, back pain and bowed legs. Lab tests show elevated serum alkaline phosphatase and normal Ca+/PO4. The bone biopsy shows mosaic "reversal lines" and a "cotton wool" appearance is found on his ceph. He is suffering from _______.
pagets disease (>40 yrs old)
Peget's disease also causes enlargement of the maxilla, spacing of teeth and an increased risk of _________.
osteosarcoma -- assume if >50 yrs old
Comminuted fractures have multiple fracture lines and fragmentsC. T/F
Complicated fractures are ________.
Hematoma formation --> granuloma tissue --> bony callus = steps of fracture healing. T/F
_______ tumors of the bone include, osteochondroma, chondroma and osteoma.
