Answer

Other conditions that should be considered in the adolescence/adulthood stage include the following:

  • Maffucci syndrome

For genetic conditions, patients present with fractures. For idiopathic juvenile osteoporosis, patients aged 8-13 years present with skeletal pain, atraumatic fracture, and reduced bone density. The condition remits by early adulthood.
