Achondroplasia on x-ray

Cinc
Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

Lateral view of the spine in the same patient shows thoracolumbar junction kyphosis, lumbosacral junction lordosis, short pedicles, & "beaked"/"bullet" shaped vertebral bodies (white) with posterior scalloping (orange). The preceding hand radiograph showed short, broad phalanges & metacarpals with a "trident" configuration of the hand. These findings are typical of achondroplasia. #FridayQuizDay
