Osteochondritis is a painful condition where the cartilage and bone in a joint is inflamed.[1]

It often refers to osteochondritis dissecans (sometimes spelled dessecans, and abbreviated OCD). The term dissecans refers to the "creation of a flap of cartilage that further dissects away from its underlying subchondral attachments (dissecans)".[2]

Another type of osteochondritis is Scheuermann's disease,[3] which affects the spine.
