Genetic skeletal dysplasias or osteochondrodysplasias constitute a large group of hereditable disorders with generalized skeletal involvement that can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Although most genetic skeletal dysplasias have been well identified clinically, the overlap between dysplasia subtypes may create diagnostic challenges. The plain radiographic presentation of genetic skeletal dysplasias may closely mimic rheumatologic, hematologic, and Perthes disease. Accurate review of… Expand
