Abstract

Although osteoporosis has long been considered a disease of women, in the earliest reports of the epidemiology of osteoporosis it was apparent that the classical age-related increase in fractures seen in women is evident in men as well. Only in the last few years has it been recognized that the problem of osteoporosis in men represents an important public health issue and that it presents a unique array of scientific challenges and opportunities (1–3). Here we examine the issue of osteoporosis in men and compare its pathophysiology and clinical presentation with parallel processes in women.
