Spine radiographs of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia
AP radiograph of the lumbar spine (left) shows delayed ossification of the femoral heads and delayed ossification of the pubic bones along with progressive narrowing of the distance between the pedicles descending through the lumbar spine (interpediculate narrowing). Lateral radiograph of the lumbar spine (right) shows the vertebral bodies to have anterior wedging and a pear shape leading to some kyphosis.

The diagnosis was spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia.
