TORO, Carlos-Enrique et al. Axial osteoesclerosis. Proposal for a new diagnostic approach. Rev.Colomb.Reumatol. [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.1, pp.44-53. ISSN 0121-8123.

Osteosclerosant diseases with axial involvement are a rare group of disorders characterized by a high bone mineral density secondary to impairment in the endochondral and membranous bone formation process. In this article, we analyzed the current classification of these diseases and propose a new and simple approach. In addition, we describe the main radiologic, laboratory and clinical keys to arrive to the differential diagnosis.

Keywords : axial osteosclerosis; osteosclerosant diseases.
