ostitis os·ti·tis (ŏ-stī'tĭs)
Variant of osteitis.
ostitis (ὀστέον, bone), or inflammation of bone, may be acute or chronic.
For a fuller description of the changes occurring in these forms of ostitis, see Chapter XI.
When the case is a serious one we have ample evidence to show that ostitis exists, and exists in a severe form.
