But afterthe removal of the sequestrum, bending and fractureof imperfect sheaths are more common. Osteomyelitis ending in abscess without theformation of any, or any considerable sequestrum,rarely leads to a spontaneousfracture. The femur has mostoften been the seat of the injuryowing to an abscess in the shaft,close to, but not involving theepiphysial line. Tubercular caries rarelyleads to fracture of the shaftsof long bones, into which itseldom penetrates deeply; butBillroth saw the tibia thus eatenthrough.
