Caption: Compression fracture. Computer artwork showing a normal vertebra (bottom) compared to one affected by a compression fracture (red line, top). A compression fracture is a collapse of a vertebra. It may be due to trauma or a weakened vertebra and is common in patients with reduced bone density caused by conditions such as osteoporosis or brittle bone disease (osteogenesis imperfecta). In healthy patients it is most often caused by extreme vertical shocks.
