Radiograph of spine in diastrophic dysplasia
AP radiograph of the thoracic and lumbar spine (left) shows thoracic scoliosis convex right as well as progressive narrowing of the distance between the pedicles descending through the lumbar spine (interpediculate narrowing). The lateral radiograph of the thoracic and lumbar spine (right) shows an irregular shape of the anterior aspect of the vertebral bodies at the thoracolumbar junction, resulting in a kyphotic deformity to the spine.

The diagnosis was diastrophic dysplasia.
