866 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning

  • Osteoporosis

    Thinning of subchondral cortical bone and marked bone loss in the anterior and posterior 25% of the tibial plateau should require special attention when osteoporotic patients[] The cortical width was normal, but a slight increase of cortical porosity was found. Osteoporosis has been rarely described in the SS.[] In long bones, although the cortices may be thin, the periosteal surface remains smooth.[]

  • Rare Endometriosis

    In Ultrasound and CT Urography there was severe hydronephrosis of left kidney with marked cortical thinning and approx 10 17 mm soft tissue density mass near left uretrovesical[] cortices at ultrasonography.[] […] obstruction, often secondary to pelvic surgery, the clinical presentation is characterized by an advanced renal failure and shrunken kidneys or dilated kidneys with extremely thin[]

  • Craniodiaphyseal Dysplasia

    In craniotubular dysplasia, there is metaphyseal widening and cortical thinning giving rise to club-shaped configuration of long bones whereas in craniodiaphyseal dysplasia[]

  • Chondromyxoid Fibroma

    Radiography and CT demonstrated an osteolytic lesion with cortical thinning and expansion with partial destruction at the diaphysis of the left clavicle.[] Cortical thinning and / or "expansion" and a trabeculated appearance caused by ridging of the surrounding host bone are other common features.[] The age of diagnosis was proposed as a factor for increased recurrence rates, with the suggestion that the reduced resistance of the paediatric thin cortices and spongiosa[]

  • Endocardial Cushion Defect

    This was accompanied by thickening of the tables, "hair-on-end" striations in the skull, and cortical thinning and medullary cavity expansion in the femora.[]

  • Estrogen Deficiency

    Longitudinal analysis of BMD and geometrical changes, specifically buckling ratio and cortical thinning, will in the future provide for stratification of those at risk based[]

  • Renal Artery Stenosis

    Noninvasive determination of earlier events (cortex hypoxia and renal artery hemodynamic changes) will supersede late sequelae (calcific stenosis, renal cortical thinning)[]

  • Renal Tuberculosis

    thinning.[] […] scarring "Smudged" papillae (moth-eaten) –irregular due to inflammation and necrosis Several cysts surrounding a calyx with cortical thinning Infundibular strictures Hydrocalyces[] thinning, and soft tissue masses. [6] Usually an enhancing renal mass is caused by renal cell carcinoma, metastasis, lymphoma, or an abscess. [7] GUTB rarely manifests as[]

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    Bony abnormalities may be clinically silent, with radiographic evidence of long bone intramedullary fibrosis, cortical thinning, or vertebral dural ectasias often found incidentally[]

  • Anomia

    Analysis of cortical thickness revealed that anomia was correlated with thinning in left superior temporal gyrus in both groups.[] Single-word comprehension (SWC), by contrast, was associated with cortical thinning involving bilateral fusiform gyri in both groups.[] In amnestic AD, however, anomia was also associated with thinning in right inferior temporal regions.[]
