"Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility." This particular definition of osteoporosis was proposed at the Fourth International Symposium on Osteoporosis (Consensus Conference) in Hong Kong in April 1993; it attempts to combine the description of low bone mass with the risk for consequent fractures.
