Abstract

In Morquio's disease and in hereditary spondylo-epiphyseal dysplasia of longer duration, malalignment, instability and unfavourable anatomy are generally the main surgical problems, but as these patients nowadays do not have a reduced life expectancy, it is worthwhile giving them a functional replacement for their severely deformed and painful knees. We report three patients with inherited dwarfism, in whom a replacement of the knee was performed.
