Diseases of the Bone – Osteoporosis

• Osteoporosis – a disease that weakens the bone over time.

• Normally, cells remove old bone, and other cells rebuild new bone. Osteoporosis causes bone-removing cells to remove bone at a rate that is too fast.

• Osteoporosis results in thinner, weaker bones that can break more easily.

Diseases of the Bone – Periosteum The periosteum is a specialized connective

tissue that covers all bones and has the potential to form new bone.

The periosteum plays an important role in the pathogenesis and treatment of osteoporosis.
