Growth arrest lines
From Biology-Online Dictionary | Biology-Online Dictionary
Lines near the end of a long bone of a young individual as detected through X-rays
The lines indicate episodes in the life of a young individual wherein bone growth decelerated or ceased due to physiological stress, such as malnutrition during childhood. The lines though may disappear when bone growth resumes and the individual grows to adulthood.
