rugger jersey spine appearance

A fanciful term for osteosclerosis which is most marked in the superior and inferior endplates of vertebrae adjacent to joint spaces. This finding has been likened to a ‘rugger jersey’, and has been described in secondary hyperparathyroidism—renal osteodystrophy, renal tubular disease—e.g., Fanconi syndrome, renal tubular acidosis—vitamin-D-resistant rickets, chronic glomerulonephritis, diabetes, hypertension and in autosomal dominant forms of osteoporosis characterised by defects in CLCNN7 with endobone formation
