Subject: periosteal callus formation or periosteal callous formation?
Could you all please tell me what the proper spelling of the above term is? I was under the impression it should be periosteal callus formation, but I got my report back with the correction that it should be periosteal callous formation?
I thought callus was hardened bone or skin and callous was when someone was being insensitive?

I'm a little confused about callus/callous. I know that "callous" is supposed to be like a callus or callus-like. But when the doctor says that there is callus/callous tissue around the border of the wound, i can't figure out which one to use. Which would be more appropriate? Thanks in advance!
