The term pachyderma means thick skin. Periostitis is inflammation of the periosteum. The condition is generally chronic, and is marked by tenderness and swelling of the bone and an aching pain. Acute periostitis is due to infection, is characterised by diffuse suppuration, severe pain, and constitutional symptoms, and usually results in necrosis.
