Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains by Donald J. Ortner

Book Description

"Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains" provides an integrated and comprehensive treatment of pathological conditions that affect the human skeleton. There is much that ancient skeletal remains can reveal to the modern orthopaedist, pathologist, forensic anthropologist, and radiologist about the skeletal manifestations of diseases that are rarely encountered in modern medical practice. Beautifully illustrated with over 1,100 photographs and drawings, this book provides essential text and materials on bone pathology, which will improve the diagnostic ability of those interested in human dry bone pathology. It also provides time depth to our understanding of the effect of disease on past human populations. Key features include: comprehensive review of skeletal diseases encountered in archeological human remains; more than 1100 photographs and line drawings illustrating skeletal disease including both microscopic and gross features; based on extensive research on skeletal paleopathology in many countries for over 35 years; and a review of important theoretical issues in interpreting evidence of skeletal disease in archeological human populations.
