  • Skeletal Dysplasia

    When presented with a patient that may have a skeletal dysplasia, the following must be performed: (a) Clinical evaluation: assessment of disproportionate short stature (prenatal[] The effect is most marked in the spine, where vertebral remodeling may improve vertebral height.[] Oral alendronate treatment for two years in children with OI significantly decreased bone turnover and increased spine areal bone mineral density (BMD) but was not associated[]

  • Cutis Laxa

    Severe short stature, mental retardation and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are other associated manifestations (16).[] Increased arm span/height ratio and decreased upper/lower body segment has been described in several GO patients and could be caused by vertebral body collapse (Hunter et[] Although prenatal overgrowth and polyhydramnios occur, patients tend to have postnatal failure to thrive and a distinctive appearance.[]

  • Platyspondyly

    […] and postnatal growth retardation (stature less than -5 SD), joint laxity, short extremities, and progressive scoliosis.[] Platyspondyly is decreased vertebral body height. There is a low vertebral height / vertebral interspace ratio.[] The vertebral body height/width ratio was decreased at the level of all the investigated tracts, namely, cervical and/or dorsal and/or lumbar.[]
