    closure of large fontanels, brachycephaly, acrocephaly, brachydactyly, cutaneous syndactyly, broad great toes, and mild shortness of stature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A family is described in which 15 persons in five generations are affected with a complex of skeletal malformations which variably includes peculiar asymmetric facies, delayed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy

    Currarino's disease is an extremely rare variant of primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy in which there is delayed closure of the fontanelles and an absence of skin involvement[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Autosomal recessive primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy1 (PHOAR1) is characterized by delayed closure of the fontanels, digital clubbing, arthropathy and periostosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We have now encountered three siblings, two of whom had digital clubbing, patent arterial ducts and delayed closure of the cranial fontanels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a rare genetic disorder of bone, characterised by hypoplastic/aplastic clavicles, delayed closure of fontanelles and sutures of the cranium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CCD is an autosomal skeletal disorder characterized by several features such as delayed closure of fontanels, dental abnormalities and hypoplastic clavicles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We studied a Chinese family that included three affected individuals with CCD phenotypes; the clinical features of patients with CCD include delayed closure of fontanelles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
