    We report two sibs showing a very mild form of mucolipidosis III with no clinical signs but isolated involvement of the hip and very mild abnormalities of the spine. This indicates that a storage disease, in particular mucolipidosis III, should be considered in any case of isolated bilateral hip dysplasia. The differences from other reported atypical variants of mucolipidosis III are discussed.
