    Osteoporosis: a matabolic disease causing decrease in bone mass due to decreased serum and extracellular level of calcium and phosphorus.
    Decrease in Ca and Phosphorus may be due to any of the following reasons:
    • reduced intake of Ca & P in diet.
    • decreased absorption thru gut by any disease.
    • reduced amount of vit D by any reason causing decreased absorption of Ca & P thru gut.

    Osteopetrosis:
    abnormal deposition of bone due to malfunctioning of Osteoclast, thereby imbalance in remodelling of bone.
    reason may be many; consult any standard book.
