osteitis

 [os″te-i´tis]
inflammation of bone, often with enlargement, tenderness, and a dull, aching pain.
alveolar osteitis dry socket.
condensing osteitis osteitis with hard deposits of earthy salts in affected bone.
osteitis defor´mans rarefying osteitis of unknown cause resulting in deformed bones of increased mass leading to bowing of the long bones and deformation of the flat bones. See also paget's disease.
osteitis fibro´sa cys´tica rarefying osteitis with fibrous degeneration and the formation of cysts and the presence of fibrous nodules on the affected bones, due to osteoclastic activity secondary to hyperparathyroidism. If a tumor of the parathyroid gland is the cause of the hyperparathyroidism, treatment includes removal of the tumor. When the disease is generalized, all the bones are affected (von recklinghausen's disease). Orthopedic surgery may be necessary to correct severe bone deformities.
osteitis fragi´litans osteogenesis imperfecta.
osteitis fungo´sa chronic osteitis in which the haversian canals are dilated and filled with granulation tissue.
rarefying osteitis a bone disease in which the inorganic matter is diminished and the hard bone becomes cancellated.

osteitis

[os′tē·ī′tis]

osteitis (os´tēī´tis),

n an inflammation of the bone; an inflammation of the haversian spaces, canals, and their branches but generally not of the medullary cavity. The disease is characterized by tenderness and a dull, aching pain. Enlargement of the bone may occur. Osteitis of the alveolar process after tooth extraction is commonly referred to as dry socket.
osteitis, alveolar localized,
osteitis, condensing,
n a chronic inflammation associated with some nonvital teeth or located in the site of extraction of such teeth, resulting in abnormally dense bone.
osteitis deformans
osteitis fibrosa cystica, generalized, (von Recklinghausen's disease of bone)
n 1. a disease caused by parathyroid adenomas and characterized by cystlike radiolucencies in the bones (including the jaws), loosening of teeth, localized swellings, giant cell lesions, increased blood calcium and phosphatase levels, and lowered blood phosphorus levels.
n 2. increased resorption and destruction of bone caused by primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism.

osteitis

inflammation of bone. The term is used to describe a number of conditions; for instance, advanced cases of brucellosis can lead to brucellar osteitis. See also osteomyelitis.

alveolar osteitis

osteitis deformans
osteitis causing deformity of bones.
osteitis fibrosa
