It is also characterised by waddling gait in early childhood, limited joint mobility, kyphoscoliosis in childhood and adolescence, pectus carcinatum, bowed legs, irregular metaphyses, and occasional hyperopia and genua valga. Adult height 130-165 cm. Radiographic findings show platospondyly, broad and short basilar parts of the iliac. Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
