Scapuloiliac dysostosis, also known as pelvis-shoulder dysplasia and Kosenow syndrome, is a rare skeletal dysplasia described first by Kosenow in 1970. The main components of the syndrome are varying degrees of bilateral iliac and scapular hypoplasia. Various other skeletal abnormalities including exaggerated lumbar lordosis, and clavicular, vertebral, rib and long bone anomalies and extra-skeletal abnormalities, most commonly those of eye and ear, have also been reported. We report the plain radiography, CT and MRI findings of an interesting case of the syndrome.
