All the controversial points have not been settled, and many questions still remain open. However, judging from the limited knowledge of bone structure that is prevalent now, except among those especially interested in the subject, one would think that this work had not been done. Perhaps there is a correlation between the dearth of recognized pathologic exposition of bone conditions and the lack of
