Schwartz-Jampel syndrome is a heterogeneous autosomal recessive syndrome defined by myotonia, short stature, bone dysplasia and growth retardation. Three types have been described: type 1A, usually recognized in childhood, with moderate bone dysplasia; type 1B similar to type 1A but recognizable at birth, with more prominent bone dysplasia and type 2, a rare, more severe form with increased mortality in the neonatal period. In this paper we report three pediatric cases, one with neonatal manifestation.
