Ewing's Sarcoma
Malignant tumor of the bones common to young adults, particularily adolscent boys.
Osteogenic Sarcoma/ osteosarcoma
Malignant tumor arising from the bone. The most common bone tumor with common sites being the distal femur, proximal tibia, and proximal humerus.
Osteoporosis
Means porous bones, bones that were once strong become fragile due to loss of bone density.
osteomalacia
Disease in which the bones become abnormally soft due to a deficiency of calcium and phosphorus in the blood.
osteochondroma
Most common benign bone tumor. Mostly affects the femur and tibia.
osteomyelitis
Local or generalized infection of the bone and bone marrow, resulting from a bacterial infection that has spread to the bone tissue through the blood.
talipes, talipes equinovarus
Clubfoot
kyphosis
abnormal outward curvature of the portion of the spine, commonly known as humpback or hunchback.
lordosis
abnormal inward curvature of the portion of the spine, commonly known as swayback
scoliosis
Abnormal lateral curvature of a portion of the spine.
fracture
broken bone; sudden breaking of a bone.
simple/closed
There is a break in the bone but no open wound.

Occurs when the force is so great that it splinters or crushes a segment of the bone.
compression
Caused by bone surfaces being forced against each other, as in the compression of one vertebra against another.
greenstick
incomplete fracture, it is a break that does not extend through the entire thickness of the bone.
hairline/stress
Minor fracture in which the bone continues to be in perfect alignment.
impacted
Occurs when a direct force causes the bone to break forcing the broken end of the smaller bone into the broken end of the larger bone.
pathological
Occurs when a bone is weakened by a preexisting disease and breaks in response to a force that would not cause a normal bone to break.
