Caption: Osteoporosis in the skull. Coloured X-ray of the skull of a 71-year-old person with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis (brittle bone disease) causes a reduction in overall bone mass and an increase in the bone's porosity, making it more brittle and likely to fracture. It commonly affects the elderly and post-menopausal women, who experience a decrease in levels of the hormone oestrogen. It may also develop following injury or infection.
