11 Possible Causes for Mild Rib Sclerosis, Short Extremities, Waddling Gait

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Spine radiograph lateral view (b) demonstrating mild platyspondyly and expansion of anterolateral parts of the ribs with “club-shaped” configuration (arrows).[doi.org] A characteristic waddling gait is seen due to hip involvement.[web.archive.org] He has a normal craniofacial appearance but a disproportionate body with normal trunk and short extremities with height below the 3rd percentile.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Schmid Metaphyseal Chondrodysplasia

    Bowing of the extremities, mild short stature and a waddling gait are evident at a young age.[ctgt.net] Radiography usually shows sclerosis of the ribs, flaring of the metaphyses, and a wide irregular growth plate, especially of the knees.[genecards.org] gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Achondroplasia

    […] of short extremities, a large head, and trident-shaped hands. • Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in fibroblast growth factor receptor[medlink.com] Spine radiograph lateral view (b) demonstrating mild platyspondyly and expansion of anterolateral parts of the ribs with “club-shaped” configuration (arrows).[doi.org] Features Bowing of extremities, waddling gait, limited ROM of major joints, frontal bossing, short stubby fingers, moderate hydrocephalus, depressed nasal bridge, lumbar lordosis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia

    Spine radiograph lateral view (b) demonstrating mild platyspondyly and expansion of anterolateral parts of the ribs with “club-shaped” configuration (arrows).[doi.org] Patients with MED and a waddling gait but minimal radiographic hip involvement should be evaluated for a primary myopathy and a mutation in type IX collagen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients carrying mutations within the five-aspartates repeat (aa 469-473) in the seventh CLR were extremely short (below -6 SD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Skeletal Dysplasia

    Spine radiograph lateral view (b) demonstrating mild platyspondyly and expansion of anterolateral parts of the ribs with “club-shaped” configuration (arrows).[doi.org] They were clumsy with an awkward looking waddling gait and had increasing muscle weakness and pain in the legs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The phenotype is characterized by brachycephaly, flat face, hypertelorism, low-set ears, hypertrichosis, hypoplastic thorax, as well as short extremities with brachydactyly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asphyxiating Thoracic Dysplasia

    Short extremities are common with occasional postaxial hexadacyly.[mirc.luriechildrens.org] There is mild platyspondyly and generalised shortening of ribs and long bones.[bmcpediatr.biomedcentral.com] Other skeletal anomalies include large head with hydrocephalus, and bowlegs with waddling gaits.[patient.info]

  • Craniodiaphyseal Dysplasia

    There are marked thickening and sclerosis of the skull and whole facial bones. The ribs are also thickened and sclerotic.[iofbonehealth.org] Abstract Progressive diaphyseal dysplasia is characterized clinically by crippling leg pain, fatigue, headache, poor appetite, muscle weakness, and waddling gait.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] […] limbs, hand abnormalities (i.e. broad distal extremities), characteristic facial features (upper lip with cupid bow, short palpebral fissures), cleft lip/palate and mild[amp.pharm.mssm.edu]

  • Osteosclerosis

    rib sclerosis, mild clavicular sclerosis, mild vertebral body sclerosis, metacarpal and metatarsal diaphyseal endosteal sclerosis.[iofbonehealth.org] gait, and early arthritis of the hip.[plaza.ufl.edu] Pyknodysostosis is, on the other hand, characterized by a short stature, short extremities and an enlarged skull with misplaced teeth.[symptoma.com]

  • Chondrodystrophy

    Spine radiograph lateral view (b) demonstrating mild platyspondyly and expansion of anterolateral parts of the ribs with “club-shaped” configuration (arrows).[doi.org] A known presenting feature is a waddling gait, noticed at the onset of walking.[en.wikipedia.org] Type 1 (short limb dysplasia), the more common of the two, is characterised by a long trunk and extremely shortened extremities.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Neonatal Osteosclerotic Dysplasia

    There are marked thickening and sclerosis of the skull and whole facial bones. The ribs are also thickened and sclerotic.[iofbonehealth.org] Most affected children develop an unusual semi-squatting stance and a “waddling” walk (gait).[rarediseases.org] Bent Bone Dysplasia Bent bone dysplasias ( BBDs ) (group 18) are characterized by short limb dysplasia and bowing of the long bones of the lower extremity ( 299, 300 ).[basicmedicalkey.com]
