Arthrogryposis, distal, 5
A form of distal arthrogryposis, a disease characterized by congenital joint contractures that mainly involve two or more distal parts of the limbs, in the absence of a primary neurological or muscle disease. DA5 features include ocular abnormalities, typically ptosis, ophthalmoplegia and/or strabismus, in addition to contractures of the skeletal muscles. Some patients have pulmonary hypertension as a result of restrictive lung disease.
