Bone loss in humans has been reported where there is reduced mechanical loading such as in space flight, spinal cord injury, and stroke. Whether osteoporotic patients are susceptible to further bone loss in states of underloading such as hemiparesis is unknown. Here we report the case of a 64-year-old man with established idiopathic osteoporosis and atherosclerosis who presented with a right middle cerebral artery territory stroke. Annual bone mineral density measurements were made at the left… CONTINUE READING
