We report two cases of bilateral cementless total hip arthroplasty in two young women affected by Morquio-Brailsford syndrome. Morquio-Brailsford disease belongs to the mucopolysaccharidoses; it shows growth retardation with disproportional dwarfism. Usually patients are affected by a severe joint degeneration from their 2nd or 3rd decade. Young age, severe dysplasia, and joint size are the main technical problems for a total hip replacement. Accurate radiographic and CT planning allows the use of standard prostheses instead of custom-made ones.
