Abstract

The Grebe syndrome is a nonlethal form of severe short-limbed dwarfism which was previously called "achondrogenesis-Brazilian or Grebe type." We have studied three patients with severe short-limbed dwarfism originally considered to have this syndrome. On re-evaluation of their clinical and radiographic features, only one of them had the typical features of the Grebe chondrodysplasia, whereas the other two appear to have clearly distinct, previously unreported skeletal dysplasias. These patients illustrate the heterogeneity that exists among the nonlethal forms of severe short-limbed dwarfism.
