Increased bone formation by intermittent parathyroid hormone administration is due to the stimulation of proliferation and differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells in bone marrow.
As mentioned earlier, the pathogenesis of ectopic ossification requires a local event that initiates the differentiation of mesenchymal cells into osteoprogenitor cells. However, our patient denied any type of physical trauma or frostbite, so we were unable to ascertain the cause of her condition.
Further, an osteoprogenitor cell, however, is a mesenchymal cell that has acquired the ability to create cells with osteogenic capabilities.
