Abstract

A new finding in the trichorhinophalangeal syndrome, flattening of the distal femoral epiphyses, is described in seven patients. Measurement of the ratio of the height of the distal femoral epiphysis versus both the width of the distal femoral metaphysis and the width of the distal femoral epiphysis and comparison to normal standards confirmed the subjectively observed flattening of the distal femoral epiphysis in these patients, further suggesting that the disease is a generalized process rather than a local disorder.
