Pseudoachondroplasia is a heterogeneous inherited skeletal dysplasia in which dwarfism is a major feature. We report here a case of a 7 year old girl misdiagnosed as rickets, who presented with short stature, lordosis, genu varum and flexion deformities at both the elbows. Skeletal survey revealed epiphyseal and metaphyseal irregularities. A review of literature is also presented.
