195 Possible Causes for Abnormal Spine X-Ray, Vertebral Fractures

  • Osteoporosis

    The other patient was a 36-year-old woman diagnosed with PPO and vertebral fractures at the third week postpartum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vertebral Fractures, Body Height, and Nonvertebral Fractures Figure 2. Figure 2.[dx.doi.org] Context Vertebral fractures are the most common osteoporotic fracture.[doi.org]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    Overview Spinal fractures are different than a broken arm or leg.[mayfieldclinic.com] A summary of published case series found cervical fractures to comprise 73% of vertebral fractures in ankylosing spondylitis (n 130) [ 18 ].[pssjournal.biomedcentral.com] Because of the proximity of the cervical spine and vertebral arteries, we queried whether all patients with cervical spine fractures required arteriography to rule out VAI[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Metastasis

    Known complications of radiosurgery to spinal column tumors include radiation myelopathy and delayed vertebral compression fractures; however, the concept of pseudoprogression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the spine to be followed by an MRI with gadolinium if any abnormality is found.[brainmetsbc.org] fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    The results of meta-analysis revealed that AS was strongly associated with the risk of vertebral fracture (odds ratio [OR] 4.25, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.07-7.42) and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One common sign visible on X-rays is vertebral bodies that have become deformed into an abnormal square shape.[umm.edu] Computed tomography imaging to evaluate the entire spine is required in all patients with AS with a possible spinal fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aggressive Systemic Mastocytosis

    A 43-year-old female was referred to our hospital because of a vertebral compression fracture, multiple lytic bone lesions, and eosinophilia in February 2011.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While osteolytic lesions may not be recognizable unless diagnostic imaging is applied, they predispose for pathological fractures, whereby vertebral fractures are most frequently[symptoma.com] […] compression fractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta

    We report two cases of a 56-year-old woman and her 80-year-old mother who suffered from multiple vertebral and non-vertebral fractures with onset in early childhood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] bone disease by taking X-rays.[healthline.com] This type is characterised by blue sclera and vertebral fractures, leading to mild scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Most vertebral compression fractures result in a loss of more than 15% to 20% of the height of the vertebra.[disabled-world.com] fractures, spine infection or tumor, inflammatory spondyloarthropathy, pregnancy, comorbid conditions contraindicating surgery, or inability/unwillingness to have surgery[jamanetwork.com] The AHCPR recommendations are based on “red flags” for spinal fracture, cancer or infection ( Table 1 ) .[aafp.org]

  • Spinal Osteochondrosis

    When kyphosis is caused by a vertebral compression fracture due to osteoporosis or cancer, a minimally invasive procedure called kyphoplasty is a common treatment.[back.com] The doctor may ask the child to bend forward so that he or she can see the slope of the spine. X-rays of the spine will show if there are any bony abnormalities.[web.archive.org] Mineralization pattern of vertebral bone material following fragility fracture of the spine. J Orthop Res. 2012 Jul;30(7):1089-94.[meduniwien.ac.at]

  • Systemic Mastocytosis

    The presentation of SM as clinical vertebral fractures in young men is rare. Here, we describe a case of established osteoporosis as the only manifestation of SM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four patients had vertebral crush fractures on plain radiography.[ard.bmj.com] fracture.[ard.bmj.com]

  • Vertebral Osteomyelitis
