ABSTRACT: The authors report a case of skeletal fluorosis described in a 60 years old man living in south-west Tunisian. The main clinical sign is a severe functional legs disability. Radiographic examination has shown a diffused osteocondensation, with cervical spine degenerative discopathy, a pelvis bilateral osteoarthritis and an interosseous membrane ossification of forearms and legs. The skeletal fluorosis diagnosis has been confirmed by high serum and urinary fluoride levels.
