In this paper, the features of joint lesions in women with co-morbidity of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis based on the constitution were presented. It was found that the combined lesions of the knee joints with the small joints of the hands, knee joints combined with the first metatarsophalangeal joint, as well as isolated osteoarthritis of the knee joint were significantly more frequently identified in patients with a mesosome constitution. Combined defeat of knee joints with hip joints was found to occur in patients with megalosome constitution.
