Bone

Clinical examination of bones

Paget's disease of bone is caused by persistence of wooven bone in an adult. Bones are weak in this condition leading to frequent fractures. Bone fractures heals faster in children than adults.

Tumors of bones include osteoma (benign) and osteosarcoma (malignant).
