Description: * Arrest of epiphyseal growth of the ulnar (medial) and volar (anterior) portions of the distal radius
* Leads to shortening of the radius and relative overgrowth of the ulna
* Inherited as an autosomal dominant due to mutation on X chromosome and has variable penetrance
* Overwhelmingly occurs in females
* Rare congenital deformity that does not usually manifest until 10-14 years
* May also be seen as an acquired consequence of trauma to the growth plate (e.g. Salter V fracture)
