Abstract DISTURBANCE in the formation of bone at the site of the epiphyseal cartilage has been suggested as a cause of some unusual conditions of the bone.

To our knowledge, osteopathia striata combined with osteopetrosis has been recorded in the literature only once.1 Report of a Case This 26-year-old white woman was first examined on March 4, 1963.
