Case Discussion

The findings in a 4 Y/O patient are compatible with chondrodysplasia punctata.

Chondrodysplasia punctata can be divided into Rhizomelic type and Non rhizomelic or Conradi-Hunnerman type. Spectrum varies from lethal to non lethal type with variable inheritance ranging from autosomal to x linked recessive type. Calcific stippling of cartilage and peri-articular soft tissues is often a common feature.
