The metabolic bone disorder as represented in the x-ray below is characterized by all of the following except ?
A. Decreased bone mineral density.
B. Decreased Serum Calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase is seen.
C. Glucocorticoids can cause osteoposis.
D. Dorsolumbar spine is the most coomon site of osteoporotic fracture.
The metabolic bone disorder as represented in the x-ray above represents Osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a state of decreased mass per unit volume of a normally mineralized bone. Osteoporosis is the commonest metabolic bone disease. Osteoporosis is characterized by an abnormally low bone mass (low bone density) and defects in bone structure, a combination of which renders the bone unusually fragile and at greater than normal risk of fracture. Bone depletion may be brought about by predominant bone resorption, decreased bone formation or a combination of the two.
