The Skeletal System

  • H. J. van der Harten


The different phenotypes of disturbances of skeletal development have for centuries fascinated artists as well as medical men. As an example of one of the most well known skeletal dysplasias, achondroplasia, one may admire the painting Don Sebastian de Mora by Velasquez, in the Prado, Madrid.
