Mondo Description Smith-McCort dysplasia (SMC) is a rare spondylo-epi-metaphyseal dysplasia characterized by the clinical manifestations of coarse facies, short neck, short trunk dwarfism with barrel-shaped chest and rhizomelic limb shortening, as well as specific radiological features (i.e. generalized platyspondyly with double-humped vertebral end plates and iliac crests with a lace-like appearance) and normal intelligence. The clinical and skeletal features are similar to those seen in the allelic disorder Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome (DMC), but can be distinguished from this syndrome by the absence of intellectual deficiency and microcephaly in SMC.
Disease Ontology Description A Syggve-Melchior-Clausen disease characterized by short limbs and a short trunk with a barrel-shaped chest and has material basis in homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the DYM gene on chromosome 18q.
