ABSTRACT

Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia (SED) is a rare bone growth disorder. Clinical manifestations may include dwarfism, short trunk and neck, flat face, shortened limbs, coxa vara, genu varum/valgum, kyphoscoliosis, increased lomber lordosis, platyspondylia, barrel-shaped chest (pectus carinatum). Type II collagen is the dominant protein of cartilage in which is thought to play a major role in the etiology of the disorder. Many congenital diseases, including osteogenesis imperfecta, hypophosphatemic rickets and lysosomal storage diseases, have been associated with abnormal bone metabolism and osteoporosis. Coexistence of SED and osteoporosis rarely reported in the scientific literature. In this case report, we discussed SED related osteoporosis in a young male patient in the context of current literature.

Keywords: Osteoporosis, Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, Type II collagen
