Reactive Bone Marrow Edema?

Answer

Marrow is the spongy substance inside bones that supplies the body with new blood cells. Bone marrow edema occurs when excess fluid buildup causes swelling. This edema is said to be reactive when it occurs in response to a change in the body such as injury or inflammation. This condition is not a disease, but rather a protective measure carried out by the body. In order to reduce bone marrow edema, the underlying issue must be diagnosed and treated.
