BERTIE, JD; BEIGHTON, P  and  THOMPSON, D. The Torg-Winchester form of hereditary osteolysis: Orthopaedic manifestations and management. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.23-27. ISSN 2309-8309.

The genetic osteolyses are an uncommon group of skeletal disorders in which severe orthopaedic complications can occur. In this article we present the clinical and radiological features of a boy with the Torg-Winchester form of osteolysis and discuss the orthopaedic management of his upper and lower limb deformities. Heritable osteolysis warrants consideration as a possible diagnosis in children presenting with clinical deformity following minimal trauma and radiological evidence of progressive dissolution of bone.

Keywords : genetics; orthopaedics; osteolysis; skeletal syndromic.
