Abstract

Case: We present the case of a six-year-old boy who was referred to the pediatric orthopaedics division of our academic medical center by his primary care physician for a concern regarding possible fractured clavicles. He was diagnosed with cleidocranial dysplasia, a genetic condition characterized by skeletal and dental anomalies, primarily delayed ossification of midline osseous structures. On radiographs, cleidocranial dysplasia has been linked to both coxa vara and a characteristic "chef's hat" appearance of the femoral head. Conclusion: Cleidocranial dysplasia has multiple potential orthopaedic complications, and an awareness of this condition, its presentations, and its diagnosis is useful for all physicians.
