A ten year old South African girl of mixed ancestry presented with gross facial abnormalities and dwarfism consequent upon a bizarre skeletal dysplasia. The main radiographic features were craniostenosis, fibrous dysplasia, metaphyseal lucencies and platyspondyly. Intelligence was normal and there were no systemic ramifications. The term “osteoglophonic dwarfism” is a succinct and apt designation for this remarkable disorder.
