Distinctive spinal changes in two patients with unusual forms of autosomal dominant endosteal hyperostosis: a case series.

Al Kaissi A, Varga F, Zandieh S, Klaushofer K, Grill F - J Med Case Rep (2007)

Bottom Line: Endosteal hyperostosis was encountered in a 26-year-old-man and his 6-month-old daughter.Both the father and his daughter presented with fractures.Odontoid process hyperplasia, and progressive sclerosis of the posterior spinal elements, was the other significant features.

ABSTRACT
Endosteal hyperostosis was encountered in a 26-year-old-man and his 6-month-old daughter. Both the father and his daughter presented with fractures. Odontoid process hyperplasia, and progressive sclerosis of the posterior spinal elements, was the other significant features. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first clinical report describing distinctive spinal changes in association with fractures and endosteal hyperostosis.

Figure 1: (patient1). A lateral radiogram showed extensive flattening across the posterior skull and marked vault and convolutional sclerosis.

Mentions: The child's development was normal and there was no history of serious illnesses. Clinical examination showed extensive flattening of the posterior aspect of the skull, which was brachycephalic. She had a flat face with mild frontal bossing, small and deeply set eyes, and low-set ears. Musculo-skeletal examination showed normal musculature and no associated anomalies. Blood biochemistry was normal. A lateral skull x-ray showed extensive flattening across the posterior skull and marked vault and convolutional sclerosis (figure 1). An AP radiograph of the right humerus showed mid-diaphyseal endosteal hyperostosis (arrow) and fracture (figure 2). The lateral spine radiograph showed no platyspondyly, but marked sclerosis of the entire vertebral rim circumference and unusual enlargement of the spinous processes (figure 3).
