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.

The coronal cleft of the vertebral bodies is demonstrable radiologically and appears to represent embryonic arrest with cartilage occupying the cleft between the anterior and posterior parts of the vertebral bodies Wells et al. Unfortunately, it is not free to produce. They will also have characteristic facial features. The cartilage in punctta with RCDP1 typically has round or oval areas of calcification.

The mother was under routine prenatal follow-up during pregnancy.

Clinical and radiologic finding [2]. Breathing problems are often the cause of death.

She was operated at the age of 1 month for bilateral cataract. Other bone surgery may also be helpful. Cindrodisplasia of vertebral coronal cleft in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata.

The clinical findings were less severe than those seen in classic rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata and were notable for short stature, microcataracts, normal limbs, mild hypotonia, and severe mental retardation.

Counsyl provides the following resources in select languages: CC HPO: Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata, type 5. Several classification systems of the different types of CDP have been suggested earlier. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 10B. Many die in the first or second year of life, and few survive beyond the age of Rhizomelic chrondrodysplasia sic punctate type riomlica resulting from paternal isodisomy of chromosome 1.

Orphanet: Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata

CC HPO: A new type of chondrodysplasia punctata associated with peroxisomal dysfunction. Her karyotype test was normal 46, XX. We are determined to keep this website freely accessible.

Fetal ultrasound demonstrated rhizomelia with epiphyseal stippling and diaphragmatic hernia. RCDP5 is caused by mutation in the gene encoding peroxisomal biogenesis factor-5 PEX5; on chromosome 12p Cells from CG11 show a tetrad of biochemical abnormalities: The patient had no additional features, indicating that chromosome 1 is not involved in imprinting disorders.

Stippled epiphyses were found at many sites. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 8B. Phenotypic Series Toggle Dropdown. Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata in an infant with del 4 p14p Peroxisome biogenesis disorder – PS – 27 Entries.

Cataracts did not progress. The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.

In 21 cases Conradi-Hunermann CDP was diagnosed but difficulties in defining this subcategory were evident. There are several different disorders with similar punctate cartilaginous changes, e.

Early literature on CDP is confusing because the heterogeneous etiology of punctate calcifications was not recognized. Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work. Phenotypic Series Toggle Dropdown. The condition is acquired in an autosomal recessive manner.


Low levels of plasmologen is a characteristic of Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.

Differential diagnosis The principle differential diagnosis is Zellweger syndrome see this term. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 4A Zellweger.


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.

Further studies showed disturbances in paranode organization by extending Caspr CNTNAP1; distribution and disrupting axoglial septate-like junctions, impaired innervation of Purkinje puunctata by both parallel fibers and climbing fibers, and formation of axon swellings by the accumulation of inositol-trisphosphate receptor-1 ITPR1; containing smooth ER-like tubuli. The affected individuals have low levels of plasmalogens.

Raine syndrome Osteopoikilosis Osteopetrosis. Biochemically, plasmalogen synthesis and phytanic acid alpha-oxidation are defective.

For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata, see Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is a peroxisomal protein targeting disease caused by a non-functional PTS2 receptor. Plasmalogen levels were very puunctata in brain and liver.

These deficiencies indicated involvement of a component required for correct targeting of these peroxisomal proteins.
