Abstract

We report a baby with severe micromelic dwarfism characterized by severe shortening of the humeri, femora and tibiae with hypoplastic radii, ulnae and fibulae which are of normal shape. We suggest that this case is similar to the case reported by Baxova et al [(1993), Paediatr Radiol 23:446-449] confirming the identity of this new bone dysplasia.
