Pyknodysostosis is a rare seclerosing bone disease that has autosomal recessive trait. It is characterized by small
stature, diffuse osteosclerosis with tendency to transverse fractures, acro-osteolysis of fingers, with flattened and
grooved nails. Other features include persistence of fontanelles, delayed closure of sutures, wormian bones, absence
of frontal sinuses and obtuse mandibular gonial angle with relative mandibular prognathism. We report a 9-yearold
girl having features of pyknodysostosis with progressive hearing impairment, in the form of otosclerosis.
