A variety of disorders can lead to osteolysis and chondrolysis. In some, bone resorption is especially prominent in the phalanges of the hand and foot and may be related to occupational or inherited factors. Post-traumatic osteolysis can occur at many sites, particularly the distal end of the clavicle, pubic and ischial rami, and femoral neck. Massive osteolysis of Gorham can lead to regional destruction and disappearance of bone. Idiopathic multicentric osteolysis shows a predilection for the carpal and tarsal areas and must be differentiated from juvenile chronic arthritis, Winchester’s syndrome, and Farber’s disease. Additional osteolysis syndromes include neurogenic acro-osteolysis, acro-osteolysis of Joseph or of Shinz, osteolysis with detritic synovitis, and familial expansile osteolysis. Chondrolysis of the hip can accompany a slipped capital femoral epiphysis, or it can appear on an idiopathic basis. It must be differentiated from juvenile chronic arthritis, infection, and regional osteoporosis.

The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format.
This will be an official peer-reviewed publication.
The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV.
The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author.
A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about)
The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
