    Osteochondrodysplasia with defects of growth of tubular bones and spine
Clinical Information
  • A heterogeneous group of bone dysplasias, the common character of which is stippling of the epiphyses in infancy. The group includes a severe autosomal recessive form (chondrodysplasia punctata, rhizomelic), an autosomal dominant form (conradi-hunermann syndrome), and a milder x-linked form. Metabolic defects associated with impaired peroxisomes are present only in the rhizomelic form.
  • A rare congenital developmental disorder characterized by the presence of stippled foci of calcification in the hyaline cartilage, joint contractions, mental retardation and ichthyosis.
