Abstract: The authors report the case of a 63 years old man who presented 13 years after a diagnosis of a tabes dorsalis, stress fractures of the lower limbs and Charcot's joints (knees). 7 years later, he had multiple stress fractures of the sacrum and pelvis and of the ribs following a minor trauma. Laboratory investigations revealed a major osteoporosis probably related to the neurochirurgical complications of the tabes dorsalis.

Alcoholic osteopathy
Sarli, M., H. Plotkin, et al. (1994), Medicina (B Aires) 54(4): 363-70.
Abstract: Alcohol intake is one of the multiple risk factors for developing osteoporosis. Alcohol has direct toxic effects on osteoblasts which determines lower osteocalcin levels at an early stage, and histomorphometric changes later on. Some authors found not only diminished bone formation in alcoholics, but also increased bone resorption. The effect of alcoholism on calciotropic hormones includes fall of PTH serum levels after an acute or moderate alcohol intake, causing transient hypoparathyroidism. In chronic alcoholism, serum levels of vitamin D and its metabolites are decreased independently of any liver disease, probably related to alcohol influence on enzymatic systems. The mineral homeostasis of alcoholics is affected: hypocalcemia is found in acute intoxication, with hypo or hypermagnesemia. In chronic alcoholism the serum calcium values tend to be normal. Alcohol intake causes multiple endocrine changes that lead to hypogonadism in both sexes. The stimulation of hypothalamus-hypophyseal-adrenal axis contributes to the alcoholic bone disease, because of the adverse effects of corticoids on bone. Caloric and protein malnutrition, in addition to a dissipated life style are additional risk factors for the development of osteoporosis.

Aluminum osteopathy
Povysil, C., I. Sotornik, et al. (1990), Cesk Patol 26(2): 65-71.
Abstract: Histochemical study of 155 bone biopsies from dialyzed patients revealed 43 cases with aluminium deposits in bone trabeculae localized along the mineralization line or in phagolysosomes of bone marrow macrophages. Aluminium was limited to macrophages in 5 cases, to mineralization line in 23 cases, and found in both localities in 15 patients. Patients with a positive finding mostly had osteomalacia (8 times) which was combined in some cases (35 times) with mild fibrous osteodystrophy. Authors failed to prove histochemically positive deposits in dialyzed patients with serious parathyroidism. Simultaneous deposits of aluminium and hemosiderin were found in the mineralization line in three patients. Bone deposition of aluminium seems to influence somehow the bone lesion but precise interpretation of the phenomenon has not been given.

Aluminum osteopathy--experience with therapy
Sulkova, S. (1993), Vnitr Lek 39(5): 459-63.
Abstract: The author discusses the problem of aluminium osteopathy as one of the clinical manifestations of aluminium intoxication in dialyzed patients. She describes the case-histories of three patients treated on account of aluminium intoxication with desferrioxamine. The disease was manifested by pain in the bones and joints and muscular weakness, in two patients also with symptoms of encephalopathy. The diagnosis was assessed only after a special examination of bone trepanobiopsy (staining with aurintricarboxyl acetic acid) and confirmed by assessment of the aluminium serum concentration. While treatment of the first patient in 1986 was not successful, in another two female patients it proved possible by combined treatment (desferrioxamine and haemofiltration treatment) to eliminate the aluminium from the organism and to improve the symptoms. At present no longer aluminium hydroxide is prescribed as a routine binding agent of phosphates in the digestive tract. Therefore cases of aluminium intoxication are rare. Nevertheless it is important to pay attention to the problem of aluminium accumulation as its early diagnosis facilitates treatment. In the author's opinion the method of choice for elimination of aluminium from the organism is one-line haemofiltration combined with desferrioxamine.

Aluminum-induced osteopathy--pathogenetic mechanisms
Achenbach, H. (1989), Z Gesamte Inn Med 44(5): 133-7.
Abstract: The causal connection of aluminium accumulation in the organism and of toxic aluminium effects on the bone metabolism is at present regarded as extensively ascertained. On the other hand, there is no final consent about the fact which exact pathomechanisms are the basis of the aluminium effects. Apart from the direct interaction of aluminium with osseous transformation processes influences of the aluminium load of the body on significant, modulating the bone turnover extraosseous factors could be proved. Discussions about the complex pathogenetic principles of aluminium-induced bone changes concentrate themselves upon inhibitory effects of aluminium in the process of mineralisation, upon immediate toxicity of aluminium on the bone cells, potential interactions between aluminium and changed NSD-function as well as the influence of the aluminium accumulation on the vitamin-D-balance.

Biochemical and x-ray changes in thyroid osteopathy
Baleva, R., L. Dianov, et al. (1978), Vutr Boles 17(2): 79-86.
Abstract: Moderately elevated calcemia, increased urine calcium excretion, normal values of phosphate clearance and tubular phosphate resorption, elevated alkaline phosphatase were found in 50 patients with clinically confirmed thyrotoxicosis. With calcium loading, an essential calcium elevation in serum was determined as well as a delayed restoration to the norm of the latter, providing grounds to admit an insufficiency of hypocalcemia leading systems, thyrocalcitonine resp. The characteristic features of the X-ray changes observed are described, especially of osteoporosis. The bone changes were established to be more frequent among females (64% versus 204 among males). They increase in parallel with age advancing, during and severity of the disease. The special X-grams for fine analysis of bone structure according to Meema-Heunk enable the confirmation of intracortical striation in metacarpal bones and phalanges in 56.7 per cent of the examined.

Biokinetics of osteotropic radiopharmaceuticals in metabolic osteopathy--comparison of 47Ca and 99mTc-methylene-diphosphonate (MDP)
Knop, J. and R. Montz (1983), Nuklearmedizin 22(5): 226-31.
Abstract: Plasma clearance and osseous accumulation rates of 99mTc methylene diphosphonate (MDP) in the lumbar spine were measured in 11 patients with osteoporosis (OP), 7 patients with hyperparathyroidism (HPT), 4 patients with osteomalacia (OM) and in 3 patients (N) who were studied to exclude metabolic bone disease. The findings in 19 patients were compared with the results of 47Ca kinetics. The plasma elimination of 99mTc-MDP during the first hour after application was normal in almost all the patients. The 99mTc-MDP accumulation rates in the lumbar spine were raised in patients with HPT and OM (p less than or equal to 0.01) and normal in patients with OP and N (p greater than 0.05). 47Ca kinetics were disturbed in most of the patients with metabolic bone disease, with minimal deviations in OP. The comparison of 99mTc-MDP accumulation rates with the results of 47Ca kinetics revealed significant correlations with exchangeable bone and soft tissue calcium. The correlations with total calcium turnover and calcium accretion were poor. Only half of the patients had equal results of 99mTc-MDP accumulation rates and bone calcium accretion rates. It is concluded that the 99mTc-MDP uptake by bone is an index of bone metabolism presumably of the organic matrix, whereas 47Ca kinetics represent the mineral metabolism of bone.
