The case presented, a 24 yr old woman, shows many of the features of parastremmatic dwarfism. The characteristic flakey appearance of areas of endochondral bone formation, however, is seen only in some of the vertebras, the proximal femur, and possibly near the deltoid tuberosities. Moreover, bone density is surprisingly good in the limbs. To date, only one of the reported cases was an adult; however, as more adults with parastremmatic dwarfism are recognized, the differences mentioned may prove common.
