Pseudoachondroplasia is a heterogeneous inhereted skeletal dysplasia in which dwarfism is a major feature. The main features of pseudoachondroplasia that differentiate from classical acondroplasia are normal craniofacial appearance, the skeletal malformations not appearent until early childhood. The main disability of these cases having normal life span is due to premature osteoarthritis of hip and knee. In this report, a case of 32 year old female was presented as pseudoachondroplasia with short stature, lomber hyperlordosis, flexion deformities at hips and knees. She had severe secondary osteoarthritis at hips and knees. The diagnosis was made according to clinical, laboratory and radiological findings. The aim of this report was to discuss probable skeletal dysplasias and emphasize premature osteoarthritis in these cases.
