The advent of peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT), a three-dimensional measurement technique, has revealed that BMD loss differs at trabecular bone sites of the distal and proximal epiphyses [20] and that bone loss at diaphyseal sites occurs as a result of cortical wall thinning, not by decline of BMD [13,20].
Abstract: A Mississippi kite (Ictinia mississippiensis) was presented to the Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana, School of Veterinary Medicine, Louisiana State University, for an inability to fly and was subsequently diagnosed with a minimally displaced, closed, simple, short oblique, diaphyseal fracture of the distal third of the right ulna.
These fractures are characteristically simple transverse or oblique fractures and come along with hypertrophy in diaphyseal cortex (5).

Progressive diaphyseal dysplasia, also known as Camurati-Engelmann disease (CED), is a rare autosomal dominant bone disorder caused by mutations in the transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF- [beta]1) gene and characterized by cortical thickening of the diaphysis of tubular bones with sparing of the epiphysis and low bone mineral density.
