bone disorders (Osteopathia striata, osteopoikilosis, and
meloreostosis, Leri's disease, flowing periosteal hyperostosis)
Osteopathia striata (Voorhoeve's disease) is a benign, usually painless
disorder characterized by longitudinal dense striations in affected bones.
In meloreostosis, there is thickening of the endosteal and periosteal
bone that has been likened to "candle dripping". Multiple
punctate or rounded small bone islands characterize Osteopoikilosis.
Mixed sclerosing bone disorder refers to patients who have manifestations
of two or three of these patterns together.
