Pathological Fracture

Description of the Disease

A pathological fracture is a fracture of the bones caused by a disease or a disruption of their structure, rather than by injury. This can be caused by various reasons such as osteoporosis, bone tumors, infectious diseases, or metabolic disorders.


  • Pathological fractures are classified into different types depending on the cause and location of occurrence. For example, tumor-related fractures, osteoporotic fractures, and fractures caused by infectious diseases.


Symptoms of a pathological fracture may include weakness, pain in the area of the fracture, swelling, and impaired function of the affected limb.


Pathological fractures can be caused by various diseases such as bone cancer, osteoporosis, infections, or metabolic disorders.


Various methods are used for diagnosing a pathological fracture, including X-rays, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and biopsy.


Treatment of a pathological fracture depends on the cause of its occurrence. It may include surgical intervention, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, rehabilitation, and supportive therapy.


Preventing pathological fractures involves proper nutrition, physical activity, regular medical check-ups, and treatment of diseases that can lead to a disruption of bone structure.


A surgeon, oncologist, orthopedic surgeon, or rheumatologist is responsible for the treatment and diagnosis of a pathological fracture.
