Q image thumb

Oligoarticular JIA

Less than 4 joints involved and mostly in knees over ankles. Joints are very swollen but not tender.  


–Disuse Atrophy

–Joint Contractures

–Growth abnormalities 


Q image thumb

RF-positive JIA

5+ joints and +> 2 occasions of positive RF at least 3 months apart 


Q image thumb

Systemic onset- JIA


Need 2 weeks of fever (with 3 days documented) and 1+ of:

1) evansecent, salmon colored rash

2) Hepato or splenomegaly

3) Generalized LAD

4) Serositis    


Q image thumb

Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS)

–a serious, potential fatal complication of SJIA caused by excessive activation and expansion of T-lymphocytes and macrophages that exhibit hemophagocytic activity

RARE (male=female)


Q image thumb

Closed, simple fracture

•Fracture in which the bone does not pierce the overlying skin.


Q image thumb

Open, compound fracture


•The bone is exposed to the environment through the wound so is at risk for infection. Procedural washout and antibiotics should be used in the treatment of these fractures.


Q image thumb

Compression fracture


common in vertebrae due to collapse of anterior portion of a spinous process (commonly due to osteoporosis)


Q image thumb

Comminuted Fracture

fracture that has broken the bone into a number of pieces (high impact crach, gunshot wounds)


Q image thumb

Impacted Fracture

Bone fragments are driven into each either 


Q image thumb

Basilar Skull Fracture


Usually secondary to trauma and may present as:

•periorbital ecchymoses (raccoon eyes),

•mastoid ecchymoses (Battle sign),

•cerebrospinal fluid leakage through the ears (otorrhea), or nose (rhinorrhea with salty, metallic taste).

Q image thumb

Acute osteomyelitis


•Most often bacterial

•Caused from direct inoculation (trauma), contiguous spread (cellulitis), or hematogenous spread

•Bone pain with systemic signs of infection

•Get blood cultures before you treat! 


Q image thumb

Vertebral Osteomyelitis (Pott's Disease)


•Causative agent: Mycobacterium tuberculosis 


ID disese and parts indicated with lines

Q image thumb

Osteomyelitis in diabetes 

•Foot of a Diabetic patient showing a large area of necrosis and ulceration caused by the small vessel atherosclerotic disease, peripheral neuropathy and impaired neutrophil function of diabetes.

• The calcaneus, seen in cross section on the right, has a draining sinus (straight arrow) in which a squamous carcinoma (white tissue indicated by curved arrow) has arisen.


Q image thumb

Osteonecrosis/Avascular Necrosis

Causes include:



•sickle cell,

•alcohol abuse, and

•decompression sickness (the bends)


What is causing the pathology on the right from left (normal)?

Q image thumb

Osteonecrosis in Sickle Cell 

Diffusely congested and hemorrhagic marrow in sickle cell crisis


Paget’s disease of bone.

Shown is the cotton wool appearance of bone on a skull radiograph (arrows).

Q image thumb


What is shown?

Q image thumb

Phases of Paget Disease

Humerus showing

lytic (1),

mixed (2),

and sclerotic (3) phases,

- all in the same bone.


Q image thumb

Paget Disease of Bone (gross)

There is irregular thick, coarse cortex and replacement of normal cancellous bone with coarse, thick bundles of trabecular bone.


Q image thumb

Paget Disease (biopsy)

Mosaic pattern of lamellar bone 


Disease? What stain?

Q image thumb

Osteomalacia (adult)/Rickets (kids)

von Kossa stain: calcified tissue is black

Surfaces of bony trabeculae (black) are covered by a layer of unmineralized osteoid (dark pink)

The excess of persistent osteoid is characteristic of osteomalacia.


What is this? What causes it?

Q image thumb

“brown tumor” seen in Hyperparathyroidism

•Increased PTH are detected by osteoblasts which stimulate osteoclasts. This leads to unabated osteoclastic bone resorption. Substantial resorption of bone causes cyst-like brown tumors within the bone, consisting of fibrous tissue and woven bone without matrix.



Q image thumb


PTH activate osteoblasts to activate osteoclasts (via RANKL interactions)

PTH also decreases phosphate in the proximal tubule, increases calcium resorption in the distal tubule and increases production of vitamin D3 (increased phosphate and Ca2+ absorption in the gut)


presentation: depression, HTN, nausea, kidney stones (bones, stones, moans, and groans)

Short black arrow on right: osteocytes (maintain bone)

green arrow: pits created by osteoclasts called Howship lacunae 


Identify structure and arrows

Structure: Normal epiphyseal plate 

Top: periosteum (black)

Middle: Bone marrow (blue)

Bottom: Residual cartilage (light blue)

Bone Formation


Q image thumb

Osteogenesis Imperfecta –Type 1

•normal lifespan

•modestly increased proclivity for fractures (decreases after puberty)

•The classic finding of blue sclerae - attributable to decreased scleral collagen content

• Hearing loss can be related to conduction defects in the middle and inner ear bones, and small misshapen teeth are a result of dentin deficiency.


Q image thumb

Osteogenesis imperfecta Type II

The type II variant is uniformly fatal in utero or immediately postpartum as a consequence of multiple fractures that occur before birth.


What causes this Disease?

Q image thumb

Osteopetrosis  -

•Turnover is decreased (poor osteoclast function), bone tissue becomes weak over time, fractures like a piece of chalk.

•Carbonic anhydrase II deficiency leads to loss of the acidic microenvironment needed for bone resorption.

•CA2 is required by osteoclasts and renal tubular cells to generate protons from carbon dioxide and water. The absence of CA2 prevents osteoclasts from acidifying the resorption pit and solubilizing hydroxyapatite, and also blocks the acidification of urine by the renal tubular cells. 



Q image thumb



•Clinical features include:


•Anemia, thrombocytopenia and leukopenia with extra medullary hematopoiesis

•Vision and hearing impairment

•Hydrocephalus – narrowing of foramen magnum

•Renal tubular acidosis – seen with carbonic anhydrase II mutation (decreased tubular resorption of HCO3-, leading to metabolic acidosis 


Q image thumb

•Irregular bony trabeculae, increased in number and containing residual strips of unremodeled cartilage (blue-gray within the pink trabecular bone).

•Osteoclasts are not increased.

•The marrow cavity shows hematopoiesis (dark cells) but the size of the marrow cavity is markedly reduced by the excess, only partially ossified trabecaulae.
