Frontometaphyseal dysplasia: neonatal radiographic diagnosis.Am J Med Genet. 1995 May 22; 57(1):1-5.AJ
Frontometaphyseal dysplasia (FMD) is an uncommon genetic syndrome affecting bone and connective tissue. This condition is characterized by hyperostosis of the skull and prominence of the supraorbital ridges; long bones have flared metaphyses. Frontometaphyseal dysplasia is an X-linked dominant trait with more severe manifestations in males and with extreme variability in females. Diagnosis in the neonatal period is difficult. We present 2 newborn boys with the radiographic findings of FMD.
