Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome DMC is a rare, progressive genetic disorder characterized by abnormal skeletal development, microcephaly and intellectual disability. Although there usually is normal intelligence, there may be delay in waking and a waddling gait.

Most individuals with Morquio syndrome have normal intelligence. The overall health of an affected person is generally good and survival into adulthood is usual.

Analysis of a second, smaller family was also consistent with linkage to this region, producing a maximum combined 2-point lod score of 3. As affected individuals age, growth deficiency results in short stature dwarfismin part, due to a disproportionately short neck and trunk, and coxa vara a hip deformity in which the femur [thigh bone] is angled toward the midline of the body.

Normally, autosomal genes come in pair with an individual receiving one gene of the paired genes from his or her father, and the other from the mother. A 15 year follow-up and a survey of the present clinical and chemical findings. Most affected individuals also have hypotonia diminished muscle tonekyphoscoliosis, lumbar lordosis, and pectus carinatum. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships.

Metatropic dysplasia I is also a rare genetic disorder with major findings including extremely short stature with short arms and legs. Radiographic findings in older children and adults are pathognomonic for the disorder Aglan at et.

Intellectual disability ranges from moderate to severe, and worsens with age Dgyyve et al. By homozygosity mapping, Thauvin-Robinet et al.

In adult patients, the vertebral bodies become more rectangular as the appositional bone which appears during adolescence becomes fused.

When there is hypoplasia of the odontoid process and partial dislocation of the cervical vertebrae the segments of the spinal column at the top of the spinespinal fusion of these vertebrae or dyggve-melchior-dlausen means of vertebral stabilization normally is indicated.

All four of the evaluated children had normal cognitive function dyggve-melchior-claksen head size. Radiographically, there is severe and generalized platyspondyly, widened and irregular metaphyses of the tubular bones, coxa vara, and delayed bone maturation. Together we are strong.

KEGG DISEASE: Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen disease and Smith-McCort dysplasia

The microcephaly in DMC and short stature in both appear during childhood. Dyggve-melchoir-clausen condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant mode. Throughout childhood and as adults, thoracic kyphosis, scoliosis, lumbar lordosis, subluxation partial dislocation and frank dislocation of the hips, wide-based and waddling gait, genu valgum or varum, and restricted joint mobility appear and may worsen.

He emphasized prominence of the jaw and relative microcephaly.

A number sign is used with this entry because Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen disease DMC is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the DYM gene on chromosome 18q Normally, there is growth deficiency resulting in short stature. The protein, dymeclin, is a protein of amino acids, and is a protein involved in the Golgi apparatus Dimitrov et at. The gene encodes for a Rab protein and the mutation lead to a marked deficiency of this protein.

DYM is expressed in the majority of tissue and codes for dymeclin, a protein which interacts with membranes of the Golgi apparatus, but its role within the cell is still unknown. Mutational analysis of DYM currently is available http: However, one patient has been reported with cortical atrophy Aglan et al.

Irregularities of the iliac crest gave an appearance of a lace border around it. Kniest dysplasia is also caused by mutations in the COL2A1 gene. Investigational Therapies Information on current clinical trials is posted on the Internet at www.

Occurrence of three siblings. Like dymeclin, the Rab protein plays a critical role in Golgi transport. A histological study of the growth plate.

Naffah and Taleb described spinal compression from odontoid hypoplasia, as in the Morquio syndrome. The Johns Hopkins University.

Children with DMC syndrome may benefit from early intervention and special educational programs. Thus, Nakamura et al.

Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work. Pseudoachondroplasia is due to mutations of the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein COMP gene, and as such, is allelic to some cases of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia i. Histologically, both DMC and SMS exhibit deficient chondrocytic organization and differentiation, and columnar formation that contain populations of degenerating cells with rough endoplasmic reticulum inclusions Horton and Scott ; Nakamura Differential diagnosis Differential diagnoses include Smith-McCort syndrome SMC; see this termwhich presents with the same clinical and radiological features as DMC but without intellectual deficiency, and Morquio disease or mucopolysaccharidosis type 4, MPS IV; see this termwhich is clinically similar but has specific radiological and enzymatic signs.

CCCCC ]. Last Edited July 13, Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda, an X-linked inherited disorder, is also a rare genetic disorder that primarily affects males and is characterized by short stature, kyphoscoliosis, and lumbar lordosis. Microcephaly occurs in most individuals. Please check with the agencies listed in the Resources section for the most current information about this disorder.
