An eight year old girl presented with short limb dwarfism. There were no other complaints. Her general physical examination showed bilateral symmetrical short limb dwarfism with stubby hands and feet. No other systemic abnormality was found. Her intelligence was normal for age. The child had three normal siblings. Her father exhibited similar short limb dwarfism but her mother was normal.

A radiological examination was undertaken to diagnose the condition and radiographs of the chest with both shoulders-AP view [Figure - 1], both hands with wrists-AP view [Figure - 2]a&b, dorsolumbar spine-lateral view [Figure - 3], pelvis including both hips -AP view [Figure - 4] and both knees-AP view [Figure - 5] were obtained. Radiographs of the skull were normal. Routine hematological studies and serum and urine biochemistry were normal. Radiographs of the father (age-39 years) showed similar changes with premature osteoarthritis. Radiographs of the mother and all the other siblings were normal.
