RAMIREZ, Fabián A et al. Radiographic evidence of the action of biphosphonate on immature skeleton. Rev.Colomb.Reumatol. [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.2, pp. 146-153. ISSN 0121-8123.
We present one patient with Juvenile Idiopathic Osteoporosis (JIO) who was treated with Zolendronic Acid, and a small series Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) patients administered on eyelie Pamidronate proteol. We describe dense lines in radiographs of tubular bones and pelvis of these patients appearing. After bisphosphonates treatment, those images are similar to Harris Lines (Growth Arrest Lines) that appear occasionally by several causes on immature skeletons land through life.
