Spondylo-epiphyseal Dysplasia Congenita (SEDc or SED) describes several bone disorders characterised by progressive abnormalities of the spondylo or spine and the epiphyses (growing ends of the long or short tubular-shaped bones). This occurs in approximately 1 in every 100,000 births and is one of the commoner forms of dwarfism.
