2. Severe metaphyseal changes (in children), with fragmentation and irregular calcification; short, bowed limbs with expanded metaphyses (in adults) (metaphyseal chondrodysplasia, Jansen type)

3. As in hypophosphatemic rickets, but with preserved mineralization (metaphyseal chondrodys-plasia, Schmid type)

4. Cyst-like meta-diaphyseal radiolucencies (metaphyseal chondrodysplasia, McKusick type; osteo-glophonic dysplasia; enchondromatosis; spondy-loenchondromatosis)

5. Mild metaphyseal changes; lateral spurs (SCID with ADA deficiency)

6. Metaphyseal changes; platyspondyly (spondy-lometaphyseal dysplasia, Kozlowski type)
