Fine structural alterations of cancellous bone in all three forms of porotic hyperostosis (porotic, cribrotic, and trabecular) were examined by the authors. The architecture of cancellous bone was altered, resulting in extended and dilated medullary spaces. Single-bone trabeculae, too, differed from normal by alteration of internal collagen structure and lamellae.
