An osseous tumour, which forms at the surface of bones, or in their cavities. Various kinds have been enumerated. Ivory Exostosie; (F.) E. eburnee ;-that which has the appearance and consistence of ivory. Laminar Exostosie; (F.) E. Laminee;- that which is formed of laminae in superposition, or of distinct filaments. The Spongy Exostosis is that whose structure is analogous to the spongy tissue of bones. Exostoses are sometimes distinguished into the true, which seem to be a projection of the osseous substance, and which have the same organization and hardness as that substance; and the false or osteo-sarcoma. Exostosis may depend on syphilis, scrofula, rickets, gout, &c. In such cases, it is important to get rid of the primary disease.
