Name : Elizabeth (Mother, Marcellene Malouf)

E-mail :

Child:  16 years old

Area of body affected: hips, right leg and foot

City, State:  Dallas, Texas

Personal History:

Elizabeth had one leg that was somewhat shorter than the other. The pediatrician said it was not unusual and not that significant a difference. About a year later she was having significant back pain so we decided to see an orthopaedic surgeon. On x-ray he observed the abnormality in the bone. Additional testing was done that confirmed the diagnosis. Her symptoms include some deformity in the toes and occasional pain. Her orthopaedic surgeon is Dr. James R. Sackett.
