40 Possible Causes for Defective Ossification of the Vertebral Bodies

  • Spondylo-Megaepiphyseal-Metaphyseal Dysplasia

    The features were metaphyseal dysplasia, markedly defective ossification of vertebral body centres and enlarged epiphyses.[scipers.com] Vertebral-body ossification is markedly defective, and ossification centers of the tubular bones are grossly enlarged.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spondylitis

    […] caused by sclerosing Ossification of the vertebral joints and costovertebral articulations Vertebral body deformations (box and barrel-shaped vertebrae) Signs of segmental[harms-spinesurgery.com] Andersson’s lesions (defects in the vertebral endplates, sign of spondylodiscitis) Romanus lesions, sign of anterior spondylitis ”Shining corners” at anterior vertebral margins[harms-spinesurgery.com]

  • Pierre Robin Syndrome

    The constellation of the spine malformation complex such as incomplete development of the vertebral bodies associated with defective ossification of the cervico-thoracic pedicles[egms.de] Axial reformatted CT scan of C3 showed hypoplasia of the vertebral body associated with defective ossification of the pedicle, lamina and the spinous process respectively[egms.de] Anteroposterior cervico-thoracic radiograph showed partial vertebral body and defective ossification of the cervico-thoracic pedicles associated with ill-defined fused hemivertebrae[egms.de]

  • Scheuermann's Disease

    Osteochondrosis in the spine causes a defect in the secondary ossification centres of the vertebral bodies affecting the growth and development of the spine.[clinic-hq.co.uk] In Scheuermann's disease there is a defect in the secondary ossification centres of the vertebral bodies.[patient.info] The condition normally occurs between the ages of 13 and 16 when the body is going through rapid and sudden growth spurts.[clinic-hq.co.uk]

  • Fibrochondrogenesis

    In conclusion, the antenatal and postnatal findings of defective ossification of the posterior parts of vertebral bodies with rhizomelic shortening and flaring of long tubular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A prenatal diagnosis of fibrochondrogenesis can be made if a fetus has short limbs and deficient ossification of the vertebral bodies [ Table 1 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although few of them share radiological findings similar to those of fibrochondrogenesis, none of them show defective ossification of the posterior parts of the vertebral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Congenita

    Radiographic findings include: 1) retarded spinal ossification in infancy, notably the cervical and sacral spine, 2) flat and/or dorsally wedged vertebral bodies often with[advancedradteaching.com] […] anterior defects, 3) hypoplasia of the dens with lax ligaments, 4) short ilia and delayed ossification of the pubic bones and femoral heads with short femoral necks and coxa[advancedradteaching.com]

  • Boomerang Dysplasia

    […] in long bone and vertebral body ossification .[newmedicalterms.com] It differs from atelosteogenesis as the mineralisation defects are more severe, with patchy absence of ossification in some bones.[newmedicalterms.com] 24T21:56:05 00:00 boomerang GENETICS, ORTHOPAEDICS An osteochondrodysplastic syndrome (OMIM:112310) characterised by dwarfism, short, bowed, rigid limbs, typical facies and defects[newmedicalterms.com]

  • Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia

    Radiographic findings include: 1) retarded spinal ossification in infancy, notably the cervical and sacral spine, 2) flat and/or dorsally wedged vertebral bodies often with[advancedradteaching.com] […] anterior defects, 3) hypoplasia of the dens with lax ligaments, 4) short ilia and delayed ossification of the pubic bones and femoral heads with short femoral necks and coxa[advancedradteaching.com]

  • 2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria

    The vertebral bodies revealed platyspondyly with irregular, stippled endplates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All patients showed splaying columns of irregular ossification defects with bulbous metaphyses of the long tubular bones, as well as remarkable involvement of the short tubular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva

    The cervical vertebral bodies were small and unusually high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heterotopic ossifications could be discerned in the lumbar postural muscles and the facet joints of the spine were ankylosed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On the radiographs, segmentation defects of the cervical and lumbar spine as well as synostoses of the spinal processes were seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
