New evidence suggesting a dissociated etiology for cribra orbitalia and porotic hyperostosis

Frances Rivera & Marta Mirazon Lahr
Objectives: Porotic hyperostosis, characterized by porotic lesions on the cranial vault, and $\textit{cribra orbitalia}$, a localized appearance of porotic lesions on the roof of the orbits, are relatively common osteological conditions. Their etiology has been the focus of several studies, and an association with anemia has long been suggested. Anemia often causes bone marrow hypertrophy or hyperplasia, leading to the expansion in trabecular or cranial diploic bone as a result of increased hematopoiesis. Hypertrophy and/or...
