Primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (PHO), known with various name, is a very rare syndrome, seen infrequently in clinical practice and presents with a wide spectrum of diverse radiological and clinical features in the patient. PHO was first described by Friedreich in 1868 with typical words of “excessive growth of bone of the entire skeleton.” The further classification of different form was done by Touraine, Solente, and Golé in 1935 and they described PHO as the primary form of bone disease. We report an infant who was diagnosed as a case of PHO.
