Abstract

A diagnosis of severe infantile, autosomal recessive osteopetrosis (I-ARO) was made in a 3-month-old female based on characteristic radiological and histological findings. The finding of multiple fractures at presentation in this infant is highly unusual. Deficiency of carbonic-anhydrase type II was excluded.
