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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cortical width was normal, but a slight increase of cortical porosity was found. Osteoporosis has been rarely described in the SS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In long bones, although the cortices may be thin, the periosteal surface remains smooth.[merckmanuals.com]

  • 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[scopemed.org] cortices at ultrasonography.[karger.com] […] 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[karger.com]

  • 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[ijo.in]

  • Chondromyxoid Fibroma

    Radiography and CT demonstrated an osteolytic lesion with cortical thinning and expansion with partial destruction at the diaphysis of the left clavicle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cortical thinning and / or "expansion" and a trabeculated appearance caused by ridging of the surrounding host bone are other common features.[ijri.org] 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[wjso.biomedcentral.com]

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[epubs.rcsi.ie]

  • Renal Artery Stenosis

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

  • Renal Tuberculosis

[6] Usually an enhancing renal mass is caused by renal cell carcinoma, metastasis, lymphoma, or an abscess. [7] GUTB rarely manifests as[clinicalimagingscience.org]

  • 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[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Anomia

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