Example text

Jeune Syndrome Jeune syndrome [asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (ATD)] is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder causing skeletal dysplasia [41, 42]. It is characterised by a small, narrow thoracic cage and variable limb shortness [41, 43]. Radiographic findings are specific enough to enable easy distinction from other skeletal dysplasias except the Ellis-van Crevald syndrome [41, 44]. Typical findings include a narrow, bell-shaped thorax with short, horizontal orientation of ribs and irregular costochondral junctions, elevated clavicles, short iliac bones with a typical trident appearance of the acetabula, relatively short and wide long bones of the extremeties and hypoplastic phalanges of both hands and feet with cone-shaped epiphyses [41, 42].

Depending the location of the protrusion PC can be classified into the two following types: N. K. K. K. Kolvekar and N. Panagiotopoulos type and characterize by a prominent sternum mainly in its mid and lower portion. In almost all cases is associated with lower bilateral costal depression. It is more often symmetric (Figs. 3). • Superior PC or chondromanubrium (pouter pigeon or Currarino & Silverman syndrome): It consists of upper protrusion of the sternal notch that is proximal to midsternum and lower pseudo depression.
