Bone infarct: A relatively uncommon condition where some bone tissue dies due to a lack of sufficient blood supply to the affected tissue for any reason. An interruption in the blood supply can result from such things as emboli, thrombi, infection, diabetes, kidney transplant, hemophilia, increased steroid levels, immunosuppressant use and bone trauma. Often there are no symptoms unless significant areas of bone are involved and usually there are no symptoms in the early stages. Radiological tests will not necessarily reveal a bone infarct. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Bone infarct is available below.
