The syndrome of idiopathic osteolysis. Classification, review, and case report.

Abstract

Idiopathic osteolysis is characterised by a spontaneous onset without previous causative factors, followed by rapid destruction and resorption of the involved bones. This process can result in severe deformities with joint subluxation and instability. In certain forms an associated malignant nephropathy may develop. A case report is presented which illustrates the destructive nature of the process.
