A practical radiologic approach to skeletal dysplasias in infancy

Radiol Clin North Am. 1987 Nov;25(6):1211-33.


Although skeletal dysplasias occur infrequently, the recognition of these disorders is important both for the patient and for genetic counseling. Our present understanding of these diseases has come about largely as a result of continued study by a small group of individuals who have become authoritative experts. This accumulated knowledge, as well as newer methods of antenatal detection, has significantly heightened the general interest in these disorders.
