Caption: X-ray of the fractured tibia and fibula bones of the leg in a 71 year old male patient with osteoporosis following a minor injury. Osteoporosis (brittle bone disease) causes loss in bone density, making the bones thinner and more likely to break. (see image 2 showing an internal rod fixing the tibia fracture).
