Mondo Description Microcephalic primordial dwarfism, Alazami type is a rare, genetic developmental defect during embryogenesis syndrome characterized by severe intellectual disability, distinct dysmorphic facial features (i.e. triangular face with prominent forehead, narrow palpebral fissures, deep-set eyes, low-set ears, broad nose, malar hypoplasia, short philtrum, macrostomia, widely spaced teeth) and pre and postnatal proportionate short stature, ranging from primordial dwarfism (height below -3.5 SD) to a milder phenotype with less severe growth restriction (height below -2.5 SD). Other reported features include skeletal findings (e.g. scoliosis), microcephaly, involuntary hand movements, hypersensitivity to stimuli and behavioral problems, such as anxiety.
Uniprot Description A syndromic form of primordial dwarfism, a condition characterized by severe growth restriction that has its onset in utero, and results in short stature and undersize. ALAZS patients manifest severe intellectual disability and distinct facial features including malar hypoplasia, deep-set eyes, broad nose, short philtrum, and macrostomia. Some patients have non-specific and inconsistent skeletal findings, for example, scoliosis and mild epiphyseal changes in the proximal phalanges, but no frank dysplasia.
