Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous chondrodysplasia with either autosomal dominant or recessive inheritance. The phenotypic spectrum ranges from mild to severe. Patients usually present with joint pain and stiffness, waddling gait and/or mild short stature in childhood. Some patients, however, remain asymptomatic until adult age and present with early-onset osteoarthritis of the large weight-bearing joints.read more
