The osteoblasts assume their positions on the spicules and cartilaginous remnants, initiate the synthesis of bone or osteoid tissue, which will subsequently be calcified, resulting in bone neoformation (Gartner & Hiatt, 1997).
2005) reported that detrital input is possibly the main source of kaolinite, smectite, chlorite and illite, while in situ neoformation during the Tertiary shallow saline and alkaline environment could be the dominant cause of palygorskite occurrences in the sedimentary rocks of southern Iran.
Our patient is one of the oldest patients diagnosed with mature teratoma of filum terminale, this case being particularly rare due to the location of the neoformation at the lumbar level (L2-L4) and due to the incidentally identification after a lumbar trauma because no neurological symptoms appeared during patient's life.
With the animal's mouth immobilized and its eyes covered the neoformation was peripherically infiltrated with 2% lindocaine chloride at the base, with support from a rubber tourniquet placed slightly above the region of the surgery.
Bone remodelling begins by removing the bone lining cells from the surface of the bone and exposure of the mineralized area through osteocytes lysis in that area (because they have a role in inhibiting bone resorption) by phagocytes, but also through the formation of neoformation vessels in those areas needed to bring resorption cells, (which are transported by blood to the bone).
