  • Osteomalacia

    Osteomalacia means "soft bones". Osteoid is the bone protein matrix, composed primarily of type 1 collagen. When there is insufficient mineral or osteoblast dysfunction, the osteoid does not mineralize properly, and it accumulates. The unmineralized osteoid has consistency similar to the tip of the nose, instead of the normal hard bone in the bridge of the nose.

Patients with X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets usually are treated with a combination of calcitriol and phosphate supplements, and careful medical monitoring is needed.
