Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Tarda (SEDT) is a very rare condition affecting the skeletal system. It is usually seen as hereditary and is featured by epiphyseal and spinal abnormalities.

SEDT is also known in other names like SED tarda & X – linked spondylo epiphyseal dysplasia (inherited as X – linked recessive genetic trait and unfortunately it affects the male gender. The mutated genes affect the cartilages only and mainly the epiphyseal growth. Knees, hip and shoulders are primarily involved.

SEDT affects the male gender and the symptoms are not apparent until 6 to 8 years of age, as the word “tarda” indicates ‘late’. This is different from Spondylo Epiphyseal Dysplasia congenital (SEDC), where the symptoms are apparent from birth itself, like cleft palate or retinal detachment.

After 8 years of age, the spinal development begins to decline. The physical characteristics of SEDT include:-

  • Dwarfism (moderate short stature)
  • Barrel shaped chest
  • Arm span greater than height
  • Premature osteoarthritis
  • Early arthropathy
  • Moderate to severe spinal deformities
  • Contracture in fingers
  • Kyphosis  or scoliosis
  • Disproportionately short trunk
  • Hunched appearance of shoulders
  • Short neck
  • Progressive Pain in the shoulders, back, hip, knee & ankles due to skeletal deformities
  • Flat appearance to the face
  • Difficulty in walking and squatting
  • Difficulty of breathing on exertion

Upper to lower body segment ratio – 0.8.

Arm span exceeds height by – 10 to 20 cm.

Final adult height – 137 cm to 163 cm.

The treatment to SEDT is usually symptomatic & supportive.

But definitely Ayurveda had already addressed all of these complaints. As everybody knows, the tridosha – vata, pitta & kapha – constitutes the central pillars of Ayurveda. Among these tridosha, the most powerful and active dosha is vata. The progressive stages of SEDT can be seen in the 80 types of nanatmaja vata vyadhi (endogenous diseases of vata). As per the classic references, endogenous diseases begin with the disturbance in the equilibrium of dosha and then bring about pain. This may be the reason why SEDT appears in years after birth.

(Charaka samhita, sutra sthana, chapter 20, shloka 7)

The vitiated vata should be managed using sweet, sour and saline tasting, hot and unctuous quality drugs and diet and also with therapeutic procedures like oleation, sudation, enema, massage, inhalation and so on. Everything used should possess anti – vatika properties.
