This text identifies the pathophysiology of various orthopedic diseases, including unusual malignant and benign tumors, mucopolysaccharidoses, and unusual genetic disorders (in comparison to the first volume, which concentrated on common diseases). It focuses on historical data, biological problems and genetic abnormalities, and diagnostic features of these diseases, including physical presentation, imaging, laboratory data, and histologic studies, with less time spent on treatment. Diseases include chondrosarcomas, metastatic carcinoma to bone, bone cysts, lipomas, achondroplasia, the Ehlers-Danos syndromes, Marfan syndrome, osteosclerotic disorders, Hunter's disease, clinical gout and hyperuricemia, and hypoparathyroidism.
