Metabolic disorders, such as hypervitaminosis A, pseudohypoparathyroidism, and renal osteodystrophy, could be excluded based on their radiological appearance of periosteal new bone formation in diaphysis with sparing of the medullary cavity (hypervitaminosis A) and generalized osteosclerosis (pseudohypoparathyroidism, and renal osteodystrophy) along with laboratory abnormalities (i.e., hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia in pseudohypoparathyroidism).

Flourosis results in an osteocondensation by altering bone mass through effects on skeletal mineralization, impaired bone resorption and ion induced decreased bone strength.8 These are all contradictory effects leading to a combination of osteosclerosis, stress fractures, ligamentous calcification, ossification and a radiculomyelopathy owing to mechanical compressive effects.2,9,10
