Definition

A rare, often lethal, osteochondrodysplasia characterized by congenital bowing and angulation of long bones. Other skeletal defects include unusually small scapula, deformed pelvis and spine, and a missing pair of ribs. Craniofacial and ear defects are common. Most patients die soon after birth due to respiratory distress which has been attributed to hypoplasia of the tracheobronchial cartilage and small thoracic cage. Up to two-thirds of affected XY individuals have genital defects or may develop as phenotypic females.
