Abstract

Among the remains of individuals buried in the cemetery of the New Lazaretto (Venice) during the plague epidemic of 1576, a juvenile skeleton with a discrepancy between the biological age at death obtained by the diaphyseal length was recovered. Other skeletal indicators from the humerus and the shoulder girdle show a craniocaudal reduction of bone length. Associated with other morphological changes and signs, the individual is diagnosed with hypochondroplasia, a specific form of dwarfism.
