osteoarthropathy

 [os″te-o-ahr-throp´ah-the]
any disease of the joints and bones.
hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy (secondary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy) symmetrical osteitis of the four limbs, chiefly localized to the phalanges and terminal epiphyses of the long bones of the forearm and lower leg; it is often secondary to chronic lung and heart conditions.

hy·per·tro·phic pul·mo·nar·y os·te·o·ar·throp·a·thy

expansion of the distal ends, or the entire shafts, of the long bones, sometimes with erosions of the articular cartilages and thickening and villous proliferation of the synovial membranes, and frequently clubbing of fingers; the disorder occurs in some chronic pulmonary diseases, in heart disease (most often congenital), and occasionally in other acute and chronic disorders.

hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy

Hyperplastic osteoarthritis, hypertrophic osteoarthropathy Pulmonology A condition characterized by distal expansion and/or periostitis of long bones, clubbing of fingers and toes, arthritis–related to cartilaginous erosion, and/or synovial proliferation, joint pain and, occasionally, autonomic dysfunction–eg, pallor, flushing, profuse diaphoresis; HPO is classically associated with lung disease–eg, abscesses, cancer, COPD, emphysema, chronic interstitial pneumonitis, but may rarely be idiopathic–as in pachydermoperiostosis. Cf Clubbing.
