Radiographic abnormalities in Laron dwarfism

Pediatr Radiol. 1994;24(4):260-2. doi: 10.1007/BF02015450.


Radiographic abnormalities in two children with Laron dwarfism are described. In addition to a characteristic bone age, which was retarded for the chronological age but advanced for the height of the patients, there were marked skull changes and minor skeletal abnormalities in the long bones and vertebrae. Such findings on a skeletal survey should lead the radiologist to suspect the disorder.
