Cleido-Cranial Dysplasia

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see an obvious cranio-facial disproportion and a cranio-cleido (clavicle) dysostosis. Comments will follow as we post additional illustrations.

PERSPECTIVES and CREDIT: This illustration is from the J. Warkany archive (called by many “the father of Teratology”). Many archived illustrations including the present were included in his classic comprehensive book on “Congenital Anomalies: Notes and Comments”. Dr. Warkany preferred to call this disorder “dysostosis” because the dysplasia is not limited to two areas (continued in the related gallery).
