Carpal-tarsal osteolysis

J Pediatr. 1978 Nov;93(5):779-82. doi: 10.1016/s0022-3476(78)81076-2.


A mother-daughter kindred with carpal-tarsal osteolysis and evidence of renal involvement is presented. There was a similarity between the early clinical manifestations of this syndrome and those of rheumatoid arthritis. The distinction made in previous reports between the dominantly inherited form and the sporadic form with nephropathy is questioned.
