Abstract

This is a unique atlas presenting age-related radiographs on more than 250 rare constitutional skeletal diseases (dysplasias, dysostoses, osteolyses, disorders of bone density, and more) focusing on diagnostically essential radiographic and clinical features. Each chapter is supplemented with prognostic and therapeutic information, a guide to differential diagnoses, and a short list of the most relevant publications. A major advantage is the systematic conformation of chapters, sparing the reader a cumbersome read-through of longer text. Presentation in accordance with the most recent International Nosology and Classification of Genetic Skeletal Disorders.
