Langer's mesomelic dysplasia is a rare cause of disproportionate dwarfism. The affected children have a normal intellect and life span and are usually seen later in life for management of skeletal deformities. The diagnosis is usually established on clinical and anthropometric analyses supported with relevant radiological investigations. Plain radiographs and full-length scanograms are sufficient in establishing the diagnosis. Further genetic studies are sometimes performed for confirmation, as Leri Weill dyschondrosteosis and Langer's mesomelic dysplasia are inherited because of mutations in the short stature homeobox (SHOX) gene. The literature is sparse with less than a hundred cases reported, and this case adds to the available data on this rare syndrome.
