Mondo Description Campomelic dysplasia is a very rare disorder characterised by a variable association of skeletal abnormalities (bowed and fragile long bones, pelvis and chest abnormalities, eleven rib pairs instead of the usual twelve), and extraskeletal abnormalities (facial dysmorphology, cleft palate, sexual ambiguity or sex reversal in two thirds of the affected boys, and brain, heart and kidney malformations).
Uniprot Description A rare, often lethal, osteochondrodysplasia characterized by congenital bowing and angulation of long bones. Other skeletal defects include unusually small scapula, deformed pelvis and spine, and a missing pair of ribs. Craniofacial and ear defects are common. Most patients die soon after birth due to respiratory distress which has been attributed to hypoplasia of the tracheobronchial cartilage and small thoracic cage. Up to two-thirds of affected XY individuals have genital defects or may develop as phenotypic females.
