Skeletal Pneumaticity

1

Skeletal pneumaticity is the presence of air spaces within bones.

2

It is generally produced during development by excavation of bone by pneumatic diverticula from an air-filled space, such as the lungs or nasal cavity.

In medicine or biology, a diverticulum is an outpouching of a hollow structure in the body.

3

Pneumatization is highly variable between individuals, and bones not normally pneumatized can become pneumatized in pathological development.
