40 Possible Causes for Prominent Periosteum

  • Heelspur

    Traction on the periosteum with consequent subperiosteal ossification may lead to its development.[faoj.org] The Foot & Ankle Journal ( www.faoj.org ) Accepted: May 2008 Published: July 2008 ISSN 1941-6806 doi: 10.3827/faoj.2008.0107.0002 A bony prominence on the plantar aspect of[faoj.org]

  • Bursitis

    The membrane or periosteum covering the bone reacts by creating more bone, a swelling develops and the skin becomes thicker until there is a prominent soft lump.[thepigsite.com] Background and history Bursitis is a common condition that arises from constant pressure and trauma to the skin overlying any bony prominence.[thepigsite.com]

  • Pott's Fracture

    Incisions directly over bony prominences and undermining of the skin should be avoided.[creeaza.com] In most instances, the incisions can extend directly to the periosteum of the bone, resulting in full-thickness skin flaps.[creeaza.com]

  • Choledochoenterostomy

    Histopathologically, periosteal chondromas exhibit a prominent lobular arrangement of hyaline cartilage extending from the periosteum into the adjacent cortical bone ( 4 )[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hibernoma

    The sites at which the tumors are most strongly attached to underlying bone are those areas of most prominent osseous proliferation.[pubs.rsna.org] At surgery, parosteal lipomas are characteristically encapsulated and strongly adherent to the underlying periosteum (, ,, ,,, Fig 18 ).[pubs.rsna.org]

  • Lipoma

    The sites at which the tumors are most strongly attached to underlying bone are those areas of most prominent osseous proliferation.[radiographics.rsna.org] At surgery, parosteal lipomas are characteristically encapsulated and strongly adherent to the underlying periosteum (, ,, ,,, Fig 18 ).[radiographics.rsna.org]

  • Viral Arthritis

    It is of interest that most alphaviruses infect periosteum and cultured OBs ( 10 – 14 ), but only a subset cause a prominent arthritis manifestation in humans.[pnas.org]

  • Chondroma

    Histopathologically, periosteal chondromas exhibit a prominent lobular arrangement of hyaline cartilage extending from the periosteum into the adjacent cortical bone ( 4 )[spandidos-publications.com] Biopsy frequently reveals a benign lobulated cartilaginous tumor, with remarkable cellularity and prominent calcification.[rbcp.org.br] […] tumor can attach to tendons, to joint capsules, to ligaments or to other soft tissues, but it can be easily removed and, unlike periosteal chondroma, is located outside the periosteum[rbcp.org.br]

  • Chronic Pain

    Histopathologically, periosteal chondromas exhibit a prominent lobular arrangement of hyaline cartilage extending from the periosteum into the adjacent cortical bone ( 4 )[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteoradionecrosis of the Jaw

    The anterior segment of the mandible - no prominent nutrient vessel supply through the muscular attachments.[slideshare.net] In contrast, the anterior segment of the mandible does not have this prominence of nutrient vessels supplied through the muscular attachments.[utmb.edu] […] angle, and upper ramus) - redundant blood supply from the surrounding musculature, either from direct muscular attachments or through muscular perforators penetrating the periosteum[slideshare.net]
