Abstract

Marshall-Smith syndrome is characterized by accelerated osseous maturation, craniofacial anomalies, failure to thrive, psychomotor delay, hypotonia, pulmonary dysfunction, and limited life expectancy. We describe a 7-year-old girl who, in addition to meeting these criteria for Marshall-Smith syndrome, had multiple fractures and skeletal anomalies. The purpose of this report is to draw attention to Marshall-Smith syndrome as one of the skeletal dysplasias characterized by osseous fragility.
