Background: Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder of connective tissue. It is inherited as a pleiotropic autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance. Albers-Schönberg described this syndrome in 1915, and Buschke and Mme Ollendorff described it in 1928. Buschke-Ollendorff is considered to be a hamartoma, an association of osteopoikilosis and...

Enostoses (bone islands) form when endochondral ossification proceeds normally, but the mature bony trabeculae fail to properly remodel. Osteopoikilosis (osteopathia condensans disseminata, or ‚Äúspotted bone disease‚ÄĚ), like enostosis or osteopathia striata, is typically an autosomal dominant, asymptomatic disorder characterized by an abnormality in the endochondral bone maturation process. Osteopoikilosis results...
