Description

The osseous appearance, skeletal distribution, and distinguishing features of calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD) were delineated in a population of 2906 contemporary defleshed skeletons. The limitations of routine x-ray and clinical examination were transcended in this study of defleshed bones. The nature of the disease was clearly identified and preconceived notions (based on the ''shades of black and white'' of the conventional x-rav technique) were examined on the basis of the actual osseous impact. Epidemiologic assessment of this disease allowed it to be distinguished from rheumatoid and other erosive forms of arthritis. Analysis of the ''pseudo-rheumatoid'' subgroup of CPPD provided clear criteria for distinguishing the disease from rheumatoid arthritis. Characterization of the nature and epidemiology of osseous alterations in a contemporary skeletal population permitted the development of a standard for recognition of CPPD in skeletal populations and for clarification of the nature of associated pseudo-erosions.
