EBURNATION

Written by

Eburnation is a process of hardening and polishing which takes place at the ends of bones, giving them an ivory-like appearance. It is caused by the wearing away, in consequence of OSTEOARTHRITIS, of the smooth plates of cartilage which in health cover the ends of the bones.
