PATHOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF HAND AND WRIST BONES IN CHRYSSI (CRETE)**

Abstract

The excavation of an early Christian cist grave from the island of Chryssi revealed the remains of numerous individuals. Preliminary examination of the bones in the hands and wrists show arthritis conditions such as erosion, fusion, eburnation, and expansion of the bones as well as two cases of osteochondritis dissecans. A differential diagnosis will include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and leprosy. Further analysis and conclusions drawn will be discussed, including the prevalence of these pathologies.
