Abstract

Seven members of one family with Léri's pleonosteosis are reported. The abnormalities found provide further clarification of the clinical features of this rare inherited disorder. There was no evidence for genetic linkage between Léri's pleonosteosis and various parameters measured. We draw attention to the importance of recognizing this and similar rare inherited dystrophies, since the prognosis is good and inappropriate therapy should be avoided.
