Description: Engelmann’s disease is a rare condition with usual onset in childhood. The presenta-tion is mainly with muscular weakness and waddling gait. Radiologically, it is a prog-ressive diaphyseal dysplasia extending from the center of tubular bone towards the peri-phery. Diverse clinical presentations have been described in the literature. We report a case of Engelmann’s disease that had dilated cardiomyopathy. This association has never been previously described, to the best of our knowledge. Indian Pediatrics 2000;37: 1373-1376
