The normal bluish-white, translucent cartilage becomes opaque and yellowbrown in color. As cartilage and the bone beneath the cartilage begin to erode, the joint space narrows and osteophytes (bone spurs) form. Fissures, calcifications, and ulcerations develop and the cartilage thins. Inflammatory cytokines enhance tissue deterioration.
