Radiological evaluation revealed other lesions encountered more rarely: bilateral femoral incurvature and exostoses, bilateral coxa vara, radio-ulnar incurvature and(More)
The authors report the case of a 75-year-old woman with an osteoporotic vertebral crush fracture of L1, without detectable vertebral necrosis, with signs of conus medullaris compression.

Other bones may be affected. Short stature and delayed walking are other important special(More)
The authors report a case of infectious spondylodiscitis revealing a staphylococcal endocarditis in a patient with a Carpentier aortic heterograft.
