Growth plate morphometry and measurements of serum chemistry were correlated to clarify the pathogenesis of hypocalcemic and hypophosphatemic avian rickets. Accumulation of proliferating and maturing cartilage in hypocalcemic chicks is accompanied by increased length and increased variation in length of perforating epiphyseal vessels, decreased number and abnormal arrangement of marrow spaces, an increased proportion of cells to blood vessels in marrow spaces, and a change in the distribution… CONTINUE READING
