It is caused by a mutation in the COL2A1 gene, which encodes a protein called type II collagen. This mutation results in an abnormal production of type II collagen, causing the bones to grow abnormally and become weak over time. The disease causes progressive limb deformities, joint pain, and arthr  Read More

  • Erb-duchenne paralysis

    Brachial plexus palsy, also known as Erb's palsy, is a paralysis or weakness of the arm caused by an injury to one or more nerves that control and supply the muscles of the shoulder and upper extremities (upper brachial plexus).
