MULTIPLE EPIPHYSEAL DYSPLASIA
Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia is a disorder of cartilage and bone development primarily affecting the ends of the long bones in the arms and legs (epiphyses). There are two types of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, which can be distinguished by their pattern of inheritance. Both the dominant and recessive types have relatively mild signs and symptoms, including joint pain that most commonly affects the hips and knees, early-onset arthritis, and a waddling walk. Although some people with multiple epiphyseal dysplasia have mild short stature as adults, most are of normal height. The majority of individuals are diagnosed during childhood, however, some mild cases may not be diagnosed until adulthood.

Diagnosis of Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia depends on specific symptoms and evaluation of family history. Genetic analysis helps confirm diagnosis
