Toxopachyosteosis, a rare bone disease, was described in 1954 by Weissmann-Netter and Stuhl. This congenital osteopathy, which may be familial, is defined by an anteroposterior curvature (toxon = arc) and thickening (pachus = thick) of the shafts of both leg bones. Other bones may be affected. Short stature and delayed walking are other important special(More)
