Objective: This study was conducted to find out the types of fractures in old osteoporotic women and factors that are responsible for increased risk. Methodology: Data was collected from Fatima Memorial Hospital. A Cross Sectional Survey was conducted based on 03 months period and 50 patients were studied. The Questionnaire was used for each patient. All patients were Recruited using purposive sampling technique. Results: Osteoporosis occur in old women most commonly. BMD and BMI have a strong relation with fractures. Osteoporotic fractures may be due to reduced bone mineral density, high BMI score (obese people), intake of steroids and previous family history of fractures. The risk of osteoporotic fractures increases with age. Conclusion: Types of fractures in old osteoporotic women above 60 years are hip fracture, vertebral column fracture, wrist fracture and fragility fracture or other types less common. Hip fracture (femoral neck fracture) occurrence is predominant in old osteoporotic women. Low BMD (< -2.5) and high BMI score are major risk factor for fracture.
