Abstract
Skeletal remains of nearly 1,000 individuals coming from the 13th-18th centuries were found in an ossuary in Křtiny (Czech Republic). From the total number of detected pathological cases in the Křtiny set (N=306), inflammatory lesions made 33.0%. The traces of inflammations occurred in 10.3% (15 cases) in all the detected palaeopathological lesions in skulls (N=146=100%). Most of cranial lesions had typical signs of syphilis. Leprous disease could not be eliminated in one case. Postcranial skeleton bones most often showed non-specific inflammations of post-traumatic purulent osteomyelitis. The diagnosis of tuberculosis (two cases) was supported by DNA detection specific for Mycobacterium tuberculosis by means of PCR methods.
