Abstract

The roentgenograms in seventy-two (72) patients with all forms of rickets were reviewed in an attempt to determine whether specific forms of rickets could be identified and classified roentgenographically. All cases were clinically proven and after analyzing the roentgenographic changes in all of the patients, it was determined that such a scheme was possible. This scheme allows one to either diagnose the specific type of rickets or offer a short, pertinent differential diagnosis from roentgenograms alone.
