Extensive Respiratory Tract Calcifications in A Case of Tracheobronchopathia Osteochondroplastica Occurring in A Patient with Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Congenita: A Unique Association


Haider M Al-Attia*

An adult female who is a wheelchair bound since early childhood was found to have hereditary multiple skeletal deformities consistent with the rare condition of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital associated with osteoporosis as well. The patient also suffered from episodic attacks of bronchospasm, stridor and cough. They sometimes were severe enough to call for admission to hospital. Interestingly, the CT images of the chest showed extensive calcifications extending from the sub glottis to trachea and bronchial tree compatible with the diagnosis of tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica. This case represents a unique concurrence of these two rare conditions.
