  • Progressive Pseudorheumatoid Arthropathy of Childhood

    Radiographic imaging, the most important for diagnosis, revealed widened epiphyses and metaphyses of bones, generalized osteoporosis of bones, and narrowing of articular spaces[] The radiographic characteristics that distinguish PPD from other arthropathies include widened epiphyses and vertebral flattening.[] Other radiographic abnormalities included overgrowth of the epiphyses (8/8 patients), widening of the heads of the basal phalanges (8/8 patients) and malformation of vertebral[]

  • Hypocalcemic Vitamin D-Dependent Rickets

    , widened, distorted epiphyses, frayed, irregular metaphyses, lower limb deformities, bowing of the legs, curvatures of the femur, tibia, fibula, enlargement of the wrists[] Radiographs reveal poorly calcified, “cupped” epiphyses, metaphyseal widening, and occasional areas of osteitis fibrosa cystica.[] […] teeth, scalp and total alopecia, mild deafness, congenital rickets with fracture and pseudofractures, sparse bone trabeculae, thin bony cortex, delayed opacification of the epiphyses[]

  • Spondylometaphyseal Dysplasia

    Mild to moderate bowing with modeling deformity and widened epiphyseal growth plates. Shortening of long bones with cupped and widened metaphyses was also noted.[] The adjacent physes are abnormally widened, while the epiphyses tend to be slightly enlarged, rounded but otherwise normal.[] Before epiphyseal union, radiographic examination discloses widening, cupping, and defective irregular mineralisation of the metaphyses of the tubular bones that is much less[]
