Jeune syndrome (asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy, ATD) is a rare autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia characterized by a small, narrow thorax and short limb dwarfism with a considerable neonatal mortality.

Skeletal survey showed typical findings of horizontal short ribs with irregular and enlarged costochondral junction, small and horizontal clavicles.
