Figure 2.131. Anterior-posterior and lateral views of the skull in an infant with congenital rubella. Note the large anterior fontanelle which extends into the metopic suture with poor mineralization of the calvaria.

Figure 2.132. Lower extremity radiograph showing the typical "celery stalk" appearance particularly at the distal end of the femur. The longitudinal areas of radiolucency in the metaphyses of the long bones give rise to the radiographic appearance of "celery stalks." This appearance is especially noted at the distal ends of the femur or the proximal tibia.
