Limbs. Shortening of the tubular bones is not usually marked and they are not bowed. Maturation of the femoral capital epiphyses is accelerated and they may be visible in the neonate or in early infancy (CREMIN, 1970). ) The hands have no distinctive features at birth but at a later stage the phalanges may show nonspecific, coneshaped epiphyses. These may fuse prematurely to give digital shortening and peripheral dysostosis. II. Thorax and Pelvis. The most obvious radiographic changes are seen in the chest and pelvis.
