    Camptomelic dwarfism is a genetic condition that affects the development of one of your arms and legs. It can cause short stature, limb malformations, and/or joint problems. The condition is caused by a mutation in the SHOX gene, which is responsible for making proteins that help build bones and muscles. When this gene is mutated, it causes bones to develop abnormally.

Connective tissue is found all over the body and multiple organ systems may be affected in individuals with Marfan syndrome. The heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular), skeletal, and eye (ocular) systems are most often affected. Major symptoms include overgrowth of the long bones of t  Read More

  • Smith-mccort dysplasia

    Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasias (SEMD) are a heterogeneous group of chondrodysplasias, characterized by different patterns of inheritance. Different subtypes of SEMD are reported in genetic medical databases and literature. The Smith-McCort variant syndrome (SMS) or smith-mccort dysplasia is one of the subtypes of SEMD (subtype II). 1. SMS is a rare autosomal recessive osteochondrodysplasia characterized by shor  Read More

  • Wieacker syndrome

    Patients with ZARD can have multiple disabilities and health concerns. These can include orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions and neurological/neuromuscular conditions. The most common clinical features include: • arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (multiple joint contractures before birth that involve at least two different body areas; sometimes caused by decreased fetal movement) • joint and soft-tissue abnormalities o  Read More
