Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Polyepiphyseal dysplasia is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, and affects long bone epiphyses. In adulthood the epiphyses are misshapen which predisposes to the development of secondary arthritis.

Radiology shows that the bone ends are malformed. Usually the spine is normal.

Treatment may be required for secondary arthritis.
