Abstract

Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica (Trevor-Fairbank's disease) is a rare anomaly that must be differentiated from other epiphyseal and periepiphyseal abnormalities. Computed tomography is extremely useful in diagnosing and defining the extent of this dysplasia, as well as in assisting the surgeon in planning definitive treatment.
