Abstract: This study presents evidence of pre-mortem traumatic injury and its sequalae on multiple Edmontosaurus annectens skeletal elements recovered from a largely monodominant Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) bonebed. The sample consists of 3013 specimens excavated and prepared from two quarries, of which 96 elements manifest one or more macroscopic bone abnormalities and 55 specimens display pathology attributable to physical trauma. Evidence of traumatic pathology is strongly associated (P < .05… 
Taking a crack at the dome: histopathology of a pachycephalosaurid (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) frontoparietal dome
TLDR
It is suspected that the pathologies in UALVP 8504 are post-traumatic, consistent with the head-butting hypothesis, because the morphology and histology of the lesions are not diagnostic and resemble both post- traumatic and non-traumatic lesions.
Description and etiology of paleopathological lesions in the type specimen of Parasaurolophus walkeri (Dinosauria: Hadrosauridae), with proposed reconstructions of the nuchal ligament
TLDR
The history of reconstructions for Parasaurolophus walkeri is reviewed, showing how erroneous misconceptions have been perpetuated over time or have led to the development of new hypotheses, including the wide neck model supported in the current research.

MULTIPLE INJURY AND INFECTION IN A SUB-ADULT THEROPOD DINOSAUR> ALLOSAURUS FRAGILIS WITH COMPARISONS TO ALLOSAUR PATHOLOGY IN THE CLEVELAND-LLOYD DINOSAUR QUARRY COLLECTION
Abstract A sub-adult Allosaurus fragilis (MOR 693) was discovered in 1991 in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of Big Horn County, Wyoming. Examination of the specimen reveals pathological
First Documented Pathologies in Tenontosaurus tilletti with Comments on Infection in Non-Avian Dinosaurs
TLDR
In 2001, a nearly complete sub-adult Tenontosaurus tilletti was collected from the Antlers Formation of southeastern Oklahoma and revealed this specimen has five pathological elements with four of the pathologies a result of trauma.
Possible bite-induced abscess and osteomyelitis in Lufengosaurus (Dinosauria: sauropodomorph) from the Lower Jurassic of the Yimen Basin, China
TLDR
An osseous abnormality on a specimen of the sauropod dinosaur Lufengosaurus huenei from the Fengjiahe Formation in Yuxi Basin, China suggests an abscess with osteomyelitis, which may have been a contributing factor to the eventual death of the individual.
The first evidence of osteomyelitis in a sauropod dinosaur
Osteomyelitis is reported for the first time in a sauropod dinosaur. The material (MCS-PV 183) comes from the Anacleto Formation (Campanian, Late Cretaceous), at the Cinco Saltos locality, Rio Negro
New insights into the lifestyle of Allosaurus (Dinosauria: Theropoda) based on another specimen with multiple pathologies
TLDR
The occurrence of multiple lesions interpreted as traumatic pathologies again underlines that large-bodied theropods experienced frequent injuries during life, indicating an active predatory lifestyle, and their survival perhaps supports a gregarious behavior for Allosaurus.

TLDR
The lattice of ossified tendons stiffened the trunk and tail nearly equally in Brachylophosaurus, indicating the evolution of a postural function by passively supporting the epaxial musculature in maintaining a horizontal vertebral column.

TLDR
The dental abscess observed in L. hamatus, the oldest known infection in a terrestrial vertebrate, provides clear evidence of the ancient association between terrestrial vertebrates and their oral bacteria.
