The student of the developmental diseases of bone, "congenital" and "acquired," has long been hampered in his efforts to organize definitively diagnostic criteria by his relative or total ignorance of the chemical and metabolic disorders that must account for their genesis. In the face of this ignorance, he has had to label these diseases with descriptions of their appearances, usually their radiographic features.
