inherited multiple exostosis
a benign hereditary disorder in horses. The lesions are visible externally but appear to cause little inconvenience. Similar to multiple cartilaginous exostoses (see below) in dogs and cats.
multiple cartilaginous e's
multiple bony exostoses in bones formed by enchondral ossification are seen in young dogs, usually on vertebrae, ribs and long bones. Adult cats are infrequently affected, and mainly on cranial bones. The bony enlargements are painless, but may cause musculoskeletal or neurological dysfunction. Neoplastic transformation has been reported. An hereditary basis is suspected in dogs. Called also diaphyseal aclasis, metaphyseal aclasis, osteochondromatosis, and in horses, inherited multiple exostosis (see above). See also osteophyte.
periarticular exostosis
occurs in any joint injury, commencing as cartilaginous osteophytes within a few days of the injury occurring.
