Cystic fibrosis bone disease (CFBD) is a common long-term complication of cystic fibrosis (CF) that can lead to increased fractures and significant morbidity and mortality in this patient population. CFBD pathophysiology remains poorly understood and is likely to be multifactorial. There are limited studies evaluating diagnostic tools and tests to guide therapeutic decisions and monitoring of CFBD. This review will present and discuss the current evidence.
