Stuve-Wiedemann syndrome (STWS; MIM 601559) is an autosomal recessive, frequently lethal disorder characterized by postnatal short stature, congenital bowing of the long bones and dysautonomia. The bones of the lower extremities are usually more affected than the bones of the upper extremities. The long bones display cortical thickening and an abnormal trabecular pattern. The metaphyses are wide, flared, rarefied and striated.read more
