Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (also known as dysplasia epiphysealis multiplex or Fairbank disease) is a type of non-rhizomelic dwarfism characterized by flattening and fragmentation of epiphyses.
Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern.
- delayed and irregular secondary ossification centers
- flattened and squared-off epiphyses
- thinning of the lateral tibial epiphysis
- double-layered patella
- hypoplastic tibial and femoral condyles with shallow intercondylar notch
