Cervical stenosis secondary to rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) is a rare peroxisomal disorder leading to multiple developmental malformations, including skeletal deformity. Specifically, involvement of the vertebral bodies has been described. Presented here is a case of a two-year-old female child with RCDP leading to advanced cervical stenosis as detected on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of the cervical spine. The practicing clinician should be aware of the possibility of cervical stenosis secondary to RCDP and its impact on the management of the patient with this rare disease process.
