Abstract
A sample survey of a small number of commercial divers yields a high incidence of dysbaric osteonecrosis. A number of the lesions are located in the juxta-articular regions of the bones. The shoulders are the most common site of involvement. Tomography is useful in addition to X-ray techniques in diagnosis. A case history is presented in which the patient describes his work experience, symptoms, treatment, and precautions now being employed in the prevention of bone necrosis in divers.
