This mass forms a spherical physis over its entire surface, which later reshapes into a hemispherical physeal outer surface and a discoid non-physeal surface towards the metaphysis.
Males express the disease fully, but females have variable expressivity in the heterozygous genotype. X-LINKED RECESSIVE INHERITANCE The phenotype is recessive when expressed by a homozygous female. All males are affected, as they possess only one X chromosome. Heterozygous females are carriers.
