  • Campomelic syndrome

    Campomelic syndrome is a rare birth defect that affects the development of the bones and muscles. It can affect one or both sides of the body, but it's most often seen in the lower legs. The bones in the lower leg are shorter than normal and often bowed. The foot may also be turned inward. This condition can also cause problems with muscle development and function, including weakness of the thigh muscles, hip joint problems, a  Read More

  • Campomelic syndrome, long-limb type

    Campomelic syndrome, long-limb type, is a rare disorder that affects the bones, muscles and cartilage. Symptoms of this condition include abnormal facial features, abnormal hand structure and abnormal joint development. It can also lead to limb deformities, such as clubfoot or curved fingers. In some cases, the affected person may have only one hand with a shortened ulna (forearm bone). There are no known causes f  Read More

  • Camptomelic syndrome

    "Camptomelic syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects the development of certain bones in the body. It is most commonly found in children, but it can also affect adults. Camptomelic syndrome is diagnosed through a physical exam, and it can be confirmed with X-rays and/or CT scans. Camptomelic syndrome is caused by a mutation in the FGFR2 gene. This gene controls how your body grows bones, especially those of the hands and feet. When a pe  Read More

  • Craniofrontonasal dysplasia

    Craniofrontonasal dysplasia is a rare genetic disorder that affects the development of the skull, face, and nasal passages. It can also cause other problems like hearing loss. The exact cause of craniofrontonasal dysplasia is unknown, but it's believed to be due to a combination of genes that may be inherited from your parents. There are several risk factors for craniofrontonasal dysplasia:  Read More

  • Degenerative disc disease and sciatica

    Degenerative disc disease is a condition caused by the wearing down of the discs in your spine. The discs are cushions between each vertebrae that help absorb shock and keep bones separated, but as they get older, they become less effective at doing this.Sciatica is a painful condition caused by compression of the nerve root at the lower end of your spine. This can cause pain or tingling in one or both legs, which is often worse wh  Read More

  • Diaphyseal aclasis

    Diaphyseal aclasis is a condition in which the bones in your arms and legs thin out and become deformed. It usually occurs in children, but it can also happen to adults.

  • Fiber type disproportion, congenital

    Congenital fiber type distortion (CFTD) is a genetic disorder. Mutations in multiple genes have been suspected; some have been identified, while some are yet to be defined. The mutations lead to the decreased size of type 1 muscle fibers. The disease causes significant clinical changes when the type 1 fibers are smaller by 12 % of the size of type 2 fibers. Risk factors 1. CFTD follows the three patterns of  Read More

  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)

    Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is a condition in which the movement of the shoulder becomes difficult due to stiffness.

Moving shoulder in all direction with the help of doctor 3. Passive range of motion and active range of  Read More

  • Ischemic necrosis of bone

    Ischemic necrosis of bone is a degenerative condition of the bone characterized by the death of cellular components of the bone secondary to an interruption of the subchondral blood supply. It is also known as aseptic necrosis, avascular necrosis, and osteonecrosis. It primarily affects the tips of the long bones at weight-bearing joints. The commonly affected sites are the hip, femoral head, knee, talus, and humeral head.  Read More

  • Jansen type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia

    Jansen-type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia is a rare disorder of the bones that results in dwarfism, shortening and thickening of the limbs, and abnormal curvature of the spine.

The disease is characterized by delayed skeletal growth with short stature, shortening of the lower extremities  Read More

  • Juxta-articular adiposis dolorosa
