Case report: hypomagnesaemia in a patient with acromesomelic dysplasia

Br J Radiol. 1993 Nov;66(791):1061-4. doi: 10.1259/0007-1285-66-791-1061.


Hypomagnesaemia and acromesomelic dwarfism are both rare inherited disorders. We report the first case of both these conditions occurring in the same patient. Our child and his family pedigree are further evidence that both these diseases are inherited as autosomal recessive conditions. There is no known association between these two diseases.
