Mondo Description A rare autosomal recessive acromesomelic dysplasia characterized by severe dwarfism (adult height >120 cm), both axial and appendicular involvement (shortening of the middle and distal segments of limbs and vertebral shortening), and with normal facial appearance and intelligence. It is a less severe form than acromesomelic dysplasia, Grebe type and acromesomelic dysplasia, Hunter-Thomson type.
Uniprot Description An autosomal recessive acromesomelic chondrodysplasia. Acromesomelic chondrodysplasias are rare hereditary skeletal disorders characterized by short stature, very short limbs and hand/foot malformations. The severity of limb abnormalities increases from proximal to distal with profoundly affected hands and feet showing brachydactyly and/or rudimentary fingers (knob-like fingers). AMDM is characterized by axial skeletal involvement with wedging of vertebral bodies. In AMDM all skeletal elements are present but show abnormal rates of linear growth.
