[Hemihypertrophy as the main symptom of dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica].

Abstract

Report of a case of dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica with congenital partial hemihypertrophy as main symptom. This diagnosis could be ascertained in a boy at the age of four years by typical rentgenographic findings although a clinical suspicion existed earlier. In all cases of hemihypertrophy with impaired mobility of the great joints this disease should be considered.
