MORENO ESTEFANEL, Luis et al. Paleopathology of the vertebral column at the cemetery of the Salesian Mission "NuestraSeñora de la Candelaria" (Río Grande, Argentina). Rev Arg Antrop Biol [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.2, pp.1-18. ISSN 1514-7991.

From a biological perspective, this study aims to make a new contribution on a relevant historical moment, European-native contact in Tierra del Fuego, through the analysis of the vertebral column of 16 adults from the cemetery of the Salesian Mission "Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria". The methodology used here collects and analyzes data about the preservation state of the sample, presence of Schmörl nodes, and osteoarthritic signs. The frequency of lesions and the patterns observed fall within the ranges reported in other regions around the world. Rev Arg Antrop Biol 20(2), 2018. doi:10.17139/raab.2018.0020.02.06

Keywords : Spondyloarthrosis; Schmörl nodes; Vertebrae; Tierra del Fuego.
