Osteoporosis predominantly affects postmenopausal women and older men. However, although far more rarely, it can also occur in younger individuals affected by certain conditions and disorders. 

Calcified Tissue International and Musculoskeletal Disorders has compiled a series of eight authoritative reviews by leading experts in the field, each with a focus on less common causes of bone loss. The reviews provide a comprehensive look at pregnancy-associated osteoporosis, HIV and bone health, early-onset osteoporosis due to genetic mutations, anorexia nervosa-related and bariatric surgery-related osteoporosis, disuse osteoporosis, the impact of Low Energy Availability on bone health in athletes, and bone health in transgender individuals. 

The journal editors, Professors René Rizzoli and Stuart Ralston, stated: 

“The authors of these excellent reviews have provided important insights and comprehensive information of value to all clinicians who treat patients experiencing these less common causes of osteoporosis. We believe readers will enjoy discovering these articles as much as we have.”
