Osteomalacia Osteomalacia is the adult counterpart of rickets and is characterised by failure of mineralisation and an excess of osteoid due to interference with calcification mechanisms (see 77). The osteoid is increased at the expense of mineralised bone (117,118). The diagnosis is established by bone biopsy and the examination of a mineralised section ground and stained by von Kossa's method which stains the mineral black/brown and leaves the osteoid unstained (119 x 200).
