Chapter 6 presents case studies of diseases that afflict individuals rather than their communities at large. The conditions are presented in these categories: neoplastic diseases (cancers), congenital defects, infectious diseases, and diseases of unknown etiology. A differential diagnosis is made for each disease using a combination of the skeletal and medical evidence. The diseases are then discussed in terms of their likely impact on the lives of the afflicted individual.

Keywords:   Case studies, Neoplastic diseases, Congenital defects, Diseases of unknown etiology, Infectious diseases, Differential diagnosis
