Knees- Knees patella closely associates with osteoarthiritis, osteoarthrosis and the knee weekness. About in 60% cases knee patella is either found absent or hypoplastic. An after displacement on knee flexion some time also called knock � knee deformity can also be found.
Elbows- Deformity in elbow is not common, but aplasia, hypoplasia, posterior process at distal ends of humerus with increased angle, limit to extension and suppination is found in some of the cases.
