636 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning

  • Rickets

    Rickets is a condition that affects bone development in children. It causes bone pain, poor growth and soft, weak bones that can lead to bone deformities. Adults can experience a similar condition, which is known as osteomalacia or soft bones. Read more about the signs and symptoms of rickets and osteomalacia .[…][]

  • Fibroma

    thinning, erosion, slight expansion; - there are 2 subtypes; - fibrous cortical defect; - more common lesion; - is small 0.5 cm radiolucency w/ in cortex w/ sharply defined[] CT scan will show intact cortices with thinning. MRI will show intermediate signal on fat and fluid sensitive sequences characteristic of fibrous tissue.[] These images can also show cortical integrity (how thin the strong outer portion of the bone is in the region of the NOF) or a pathologic fracture.[]

  • Exostosis

  • Osteoporosis

    The main radiographic features of generalized osteoporosis are cortical thinning and increased radiolucency. 1 Vertebral fractures are a frequent complication of osteoporosis[] cortical bone and marked bone loss in the anterior and posterior 25% of the tibial plateau should require special attention when osteoporotic patients require fracture fixation[] The main radiographic features of generalized osteoporosis are cortical thinning and increased radiolucency.[]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Subchondral bone plate is a thin cortical lamella, lying immediately beneath the calcified cartilage [ 12 ].[] The osteochondral plate consists of the following: a thin layer of cortical bone (also called the subchondral plate), a calcified layer of cartilage, adjacent articular cartilage[] However, the subchondral bone plate remained thin in the feline OA knee joint [ 78 ], while other animals showed a subsequent thickening of the cortical plate with OA progression[]

  • Otitis Media

    In the first session, the titanium screw is fixed ideally up to a minimum depth of 2.5 mm of the cortical bone.[] In children, the maximum depth of insertion is specified as 3 mm due to the thin cranium and the contour of the skull [175].[]

Uninvolved renal tissue may hypertrophy locally with segmental enlargement.[]
