We report a female thalassaemia major patient who developed short stature and osteochondrodystrophic lesions during therapy with desferrioxamine (DFX). Healing was noted after the dose of DFX was decreased for 3 years. Unfortunately the spinal cartilage abnormalities did not change suggesting an irreversibility of the ossification process.
