Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe a rare and sporadic condition, characterized by swan neck deformity in hands, hip osteoarthritis in adulthood and malformations of the middle phalanges with an angel shape. The patient is a 4 year old boy who suffered hand trauma and on x-ray examination he was diagnosed with angel-shaped phalango-epiphyseal dysplasia. Based on this diagnosis, his mother, who suffered from constant pain in her hips and lower limbs, was diagnosed with this syndrome as well.
