We present a girl with short stature, growth hormone neurosecretory dysfunction, severe hypoplastic/aplastic changes of the bones of the hands and feet with dysharmonic ossification, severely delayed bone age, microcrania, and fibular hypoplasia. Parental consanguinity suggests autosomal recessive inheritance. An additional three cases [Eiken et al., 1984: Eur J Pediatr 141: 231-235] sharing some of the radiographic manifestations of this patient have been reported. However, distinctive findings in the present case seem to outline a separate entity.
