Abstract

Objective: Osteoporosis (OP) is one of the most frequent metabolic bone disorders worldwide, male OP is still underestimated and undertreated. Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is considered as an important cause of secondary OP in males and there is limited data on this condition in Turkey. This study aimed to evaluate the bone mineral density (BMD) of male PPMS patients and the possible clinical and laboratory interacting factors as well as to also define the correlation between BMD and bone turnover markers (BTM).
