Syndromes of the Head and Neck. Chondrodysplasia punctata, X-linked dominant. Multiple recombinations appeared to exclude the Xq28 region as the site of the gene. Affected infants may fail to grow and gain weight at the rate expected for age and gender failure to thrive.

Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work.

Florida Zoo Gives Girl with Conradi-Hünermann Syndrome an Unforgettable Day

New York, NY; Mutations of the EBP gene result in the accumulation of sterols in the plasma and certain tissues of the body. Dominant sex-linked inherited chondrodysplasia punctata: A second possibility is that of metabolic interference as proposed by Johnson However, since males have only one X chromosome, if they inherit a gene for a disease present on the X, it is more likely to be fully expressed.

For more information on these disorders, choose the specific disorder name as your search term in the Rare Disease Database.

Information on current clinical synrome is posted on the Internet at www. The phenotype of Td is similar to that seen in heterozygous females with human X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata as well as another X-linked semidominant mouse mutation, ‘bare patches’ Bpa. Chromosomes, which are present in the ayndrome of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual.


In the case of the infant there had been no maternal exposure to embryopathic agents, and, in particular, no warfarin therapy had been given. The mouse X-linked developmental mutant, tattered, lies between DXMit55 and Xkh and is associated with hyperkeratinization.

Psoriasiform skin changes became syndroem for the first time during adulthood. About News Events Contact. The left fourth metacarpal was short.

Milder forms of RCDP have been identified in which affected individuals have less severe mental deficits and growth deficiency and often no rhizomelia.

The mother was born with short femora and humeri, the left leg shorter than the right, saddle nose, frontal bossing, flexion contractures at the hips and knees, left talipes equinovarus and hyperkeratosis with erythema of the left side of the body.

The location of the Bpa gene in the mouse suggested that the human counterpart is in the Xq28 region. Scientists are still trying to understand exactly where the mutation occurs so that they can correct it.

Intelligence is usually unaffected. Although Sutphen et al. Surprisingly, multiple crossovers were also found with 26 other markers distributed over the rest of the X chromosome. Indeed, multiple crossovers were found, with 26 other markers spread along the rest of the X chromosome.

Decreased peroxisomal enzyme activity was demonstrated on fibroblast hjnermann.

Many of these disorders are caused by mutations in the PEX7 gene and are inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. A number sign is used with this entry because X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata-2 CDPX2 is caused by mutation in the gene encoding delta 8 -delta 7 sterol isomerase emopamil-binding protein EBP; on chromosome Xp Mutations of the EBP gene result in deficient levels of functional copies of this protein.

Chondrodysplasia punctata CDP is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder characterized by punctiform calcification of the bones. It is important to note that affected individuals may not have all of the symptoms discussed below.


Conradi Hünermann Syndrome – NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders)

The hnermann encodes a steroid dehydrogenase enzyme that also plays a role in cholesterol metabolism. Evidence suggests that the greatest period of risk occurs from approximately six to nine weeks following conception.

The numbered bands specify the location of the thousands of genes that are present on each chromosome. According to investigators, some cases of the disorder appear to result from different mutations of the same gene i. An unstable premutation would also explain the striking clinical variability of the phenotype, including stepwise increases in disease expression in successive generations.

Cohradi adulthood, she had a gross kyphoscoliosis and was cm in height, with relative truncal shortening.

National Organization for Rare Disorders. Chromosomal mapping and developmental study of Tattered-Hokkaido Tdho. The EBP gene creates a protein known as emopamil-binding protein. In some cases, affected areas of the skin may be darker or lighter than surrounding areas hyper- and hypopigmentation.

Conradi–Hünermann syndrome

X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata CDPX2 caused by single gene mosaicism in a male. Sheffield traced the legitimacy of a tripartite eponym for this disorder: Hunter syndrome Purine—pyrimidine metabolism: The gene mutation is inherited as an X-linked dominant trait.

Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata RCDP spectrum are a group of rare disorders that are also classified as peroxisomal biogenesis disorders. Contrasting with the XXY male reported by Sutphen et al. These disorders include other forms of ichthyosis.
