Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is a rare developmental brain disorder characterized by systemic shortening of the proximal bones (i.e. rhizomelia). A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 1 (RCDP1) is caused by homozygous or. Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) is a peroxisomal disorder characterized by disproportionately short stature primarily affecting the proximal parts.

Summary Epidemiology Prevalence of the rhizomelic type is estimated at 1 inIn 57 cases the CDP was of the mild type, including 9 cases due to phenytoin exposure during pregnancy and 3 cases due to Warfarin embryopathy. Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata RCDP is a peroxisomal disorder characterized by disproportionately short stature primarily affecting the proximal parts of the extremities, a typical facial appearance including a broad nasal bridge, epicanthus, high-arched palate, dysplastic external ears, and micrognathia, congenital contractures, characteristic ocular involvement, dwarfism, and severe mental retardation with spasticity.

OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. The patient had no additional features, indicating that chromosome 1 is not involved in imprinting disorders. The term infant was admitted to the neonatology department because of its atypical facial appearance and extremity anomalies at the 2nd hour of her life.

Genetics and molecular basis of human peroxisome biogenesis disorders. The radiological findings of the patient were compatible with CDP with punctate calcifications in the epiphyses and coronal clefts in the vertebral bodies Figure 1.

rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 1

Chondrodysplasia punctata CDP is a rarely occurring skeletal dysplasia characterized by stippled, punctuate calcifications around joints and within cartilages [ 1 ]. Chondrodystrophia calcificans congenita chondrodysplasia epiphysialis punctata, stippled epiphyses. A new pnuctata of chondrodysplasia punctata associated with peroxisomal dysfunction. In the skeletal survey performed, there were proximal shortness, thick and short diaphyses, and large and irregular metaphyses in the long bones and normal fingers.


Many children with the disease require a feeding tube. They suggested that cases labeled as chondrodystrophia calcificans by De Lange and JanssenGeklePhillips case 2and Putschar actually included patients with Zellweger syndrome. Vitamin K-dependent formation of gamma-carboxyglutamic acid. In addition, the gap junctional protein connexin GJA1;known to be recruited to LRMs and essential for lens development and spermatogenesis, was downregulated in embryonic fibroblasts of the ether lipid-deficient mice.

Osteochondroma osteochondromatosis Hereditary multiple exostoses. In 21 cases Condrpdisplasia CDP was diagnosed but difficulties in defining this subcategory were evident. They will also have characteristic facial features. Low levels of plasmologen is a characteristic of Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata, type 5.

Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata – Wikipedia

Borochowitz described a girl with unusual features that included short and broad humeri, symmetrical brachymetacarpy, especially of the fourth metacarpals, and hypoplastic distal phalanges as well as sagittal clefting of vertebral bodies and punctate calcifications at various areas including the entire spine, sacrum, hands, feet, trachea, and thyroid cartilage. Subscribe to Table of Rizom,ica Alerts. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 11B.

Clinical, radiological and biochemical classification of chondrodysplasia punctata. The patient had pulmonary stenosis and atrial septal defect. Biochemically, plasmalogen synthesis and phytanic acid alpha-oxidation are defective. Infobox medical condition new CS1 maint: Cervical stenosis is very rarely reported in rhizomelic CDP cases [ 13 ]. Further studies showed disturbances in paranode organization by extending Caspr CNTNAP1; distribution and disrupting axoglial septate-like junctions, puntata innervation of Purkinje cells by both parallel fibers and punnctata fibers, and formation of axon swellings by the accumulation of inositol-trisphosphate receptor-1 ITPR1; containing smooth ER-like tubuli.

In the rhizomelic form, the opacities tend to be bilateral and symmetric; in the X-linked form, they are usually asymmetric and ruzomlica unilateral.


Case Reports in Medicine

She did not have any chronic disease and there was no history of exposure to any known embryopathic agents and, in particular, no warfarin therapy or alcohol use had been given.

RCP type 2 arises secondary to mutations in the acyl-CoA: Congenital chondrodystrophia calcificans of infant in association with other abnormalities: So, our patient was described as mildly affected. Children with the classic form of RCDP1 typically have shortened arm and leg bones. Abstract Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctate RCDP is a rare autosomal recessive peroxisomal disease. Early literature on CDP is confusing because the heterogeneous etiology of punctate calcifications was not recognized.

Management of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata can include physical therapy ; additionally orthopedic procedures improved function sometimes in affected people. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Their lung function must be closely monitored to avoid infection and choking hazards.
