Abstract

The authors report on a family whose female members suffered from repeated pathological fractures of the femur. The pedigree showed the characteristics of a dominant inheritance. The occurrence of the pathologic fracture exclusively in females can be only considered as a casual event. The radiographic examinations performed on every available members of the family showed diaphyseal cortical sclerosis of the long tubular bones. The authors consider that an unusual form of Ribbing disease is prevailing. The femoral localisation of pathological fractures can be explained by weight bearing.
