Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

The aim of this Special Issue, “Diagnosis and Management of Bone Diseases”, is to focus on diagnosis and up-to-date management of major bone diseases that are associated with bone fragility, including nutritional rickets, hypophosphatemic rickets, osteogenesis imperfecta, Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, Marfan's syndrome, Paget’s disease, hypophosphatasia, osteopetrosis, osteomalacia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, bone cancer and other related conditions. 

I would like to extend an invitation on behalf of the Editorial Board for you to submit original research papers, review articles, compelling case studies, and descriptions of diagnostic procedures for consideration and potential publication.

Studies that deepen the understanding of new diagnostic mechanisms and novel management approaches are especially welcome. We welcome researchers to discuss the benefits of cutting-edge diagnostic techniques as well as the drawbacks of established diagnostic procedures in bone pathology. Reports on the treatment and care given to patients by multidisciplinary teams are also of interest. 

We especially appreciate innovations in basic science and molecular genetics that provide powerful new diagnostic approaches for specific bone diseases. 

In this Special Issue, we aim to address these fascinating areas, which are the major ongoing challenges in the diagnosis and management of bone diseases.

Dr. Jose M. Moran
Guest Editor
