M87.08: Idiopathic aseptic necrosis of bone Other

Bone has died in your head or trunk.

The trunk includes the chest, back, abdomen, and pelvis. Various bones support the trunk. These are the spine, the ribs and the pelvic bones, for example. Most organs are in the trunk. These include the heart, the lungs and the kidneys, for example.

Bone has died in your head or trunk, probably because bone tissue was not getting enough blood. The exact cause of the disease is unknown.

When bone is dead, one may have pain at the site affected. It may also sometimes then become impossible to move one’s head or trunk properly.
