On sonographic evaluation, the weight of the ultrasound probe may compress the skull in severe cases. Death often results from respiratory failure related to thorax deformity, in OI type II in particular. Milder cases, especially in the setting of isolated posterior rib fractures, can be mistaken for NAT and may require genetic testing for its confirmation or exclusion (40,43). Aunt Minnie’s Pearls Multiple appendicular skeletal fractures in overtubulated, thinned, and osteopenic bones are the best radiographic clues.

In addition to the metaphyseal cupping and fraying and loss of the zone of provisional ­calcification producing widened physes, long bones may demonstrate bowing deformities as well. Cupping and fraying of the costochondral junctions, which are metaphyseal equivalents, create palpable masses on the anterior chest wall likened to the beads of a rosary. Rickets is seldom encountered ­before 6 months of age in full-term infants, and most cases are diagnosed before the patient is 2 years old (19). Aunt Minnie’s Pearls In rickets, the metaphyses are cupped, frayed, and splayed.

Immediate neonatal period secondary to respiratory insufficiency from pulmonary hypoplasia related to diminutive thoracic size or failure of respiratory control resulting from foramen magnum stenosis. TD can be diagnosed sonographically by prenatal ultrasound or evaluated postnatally by conventional radiographs. Both modalities show similar findings. TD is characterized by markedly foreshortened ribs with associated narrowed thorax, platyspondyly, extremely short (micromelic) extremities that may be either bowed or straight, macrocephaly with frontal bossing, and a diminutive, flared pelvis with narrowed sacrosciatic notches.
