Caption

Jeune syndrome. X-ray of the chest of a 2 year old with Jeune syndrome, also known as asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy. This inherited disease affects the development of the bones and cartilage and causes the ribs to be smaller, and therefore the rib cage to be narrower, than normal. This doesn't allow the lungs to develop probably and prevents normal inhalation. It is often fatal in the early years and very few patients live into their teens.
