Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The diagnosis of punctate epiphyseal dysplasia (PED) after disappearance of puncta is problematical. In some instances, however, the phenotypic and radiographic characteristics may persist and permit a retrospective diagnosis of PED in persons with unclassified bone dysplasia or bone changes of unknown origin. We report a boy aged 8 years who presented with unusual bony abnormalities that were consistent with a diagnosis of PED.
