Osteoporosis in men is an increasingly important clinical issue. About one in three osteoporotic fractures occur in men, and the consequences of these fractures are generally more severe than in women. Despite these evidences, osteoporosis remains under-recognized and undertreated in men. This review provides a summary of recent developments about the causes, pathogenesis, and treatment of osteoporosis in men.

Abstract

Osteoporosis in men is an increasingly important clinical issue. About one in three osteoporotic fractures occur in men, and the consequences of these fractures are generally more severe than in women. Despite these evidences, osteoporosis remains under-recognized and undertreated in men. This review provides a summary of recent developments about the causes, pathogenesis, and treatment of osteoporosis in men.
