Abstract

Presentation of Case A 41-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of spastic tetraparesis. The patient was the firstborn child of three siblings.

X-ray films of the bones taken two years later showed arrested growth. She performed well in school, graduated from college, and became an elementary-school teacher. Eighteen years before admission her first child was delivered by cesarean section because her pelvis was too small. During her.
