Learn About Osteopoikilosis

What is the definition of Osteopoikilosis?
Osteopoikilosis is a condition in which many small, roundish spots are found in the bones, particularly near the joints.  These spots are areas of bone tissue that did not develop properly and are exceptionally dense.  They usually do not cause symptoms and do not change over time.  Osteopoikilosis can be diagnosed at any age and is often detected by chance when an otherwise healthy individual has x-rays for an unrelated reason, such as injury.  This condition may occur randomly with no other features (sporadic), or may be inherited from a parent as a part of Buschke Ollendorff syndrome.
