8 Possible Causes for Onset of Kyphosis in Childhood

  • Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva

    Abstract Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification. We mapped FOP to chromosome 2q23-24 by linkage analysis and identified an identical heterozygous mutation (617G A; R206H) in the glycine-serine (GS)[…][]

  • Boomerang Dysplasia

    Kyphosis and occasionally scoliosis with slight shortening of the trunk develop in childhood. Minor heart valve dysplasia has been described in several persons.[] These include: CHST3 -related skeletal dysplasia (also known as spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, Omani type [ Thiele et al 2004 ]) is characterized by short stature of prenatal onset[]

  • Stickler Syndrome Type 2

    Skeletal abnormalities including a curved spine (scoliosis or kyphosis), hyper-mobile joints, early onset arthritis, chest deformities, hip disorders of childhood (called[]

  • Kahrizi Syndrome

    Eur J Hum Genet. 2011 Jan;19(1):115-7. doi: 10.1038/ejhg.2010.132. Epub 2010 Aug 11. Abstract As part of a large-scale, systematic effort to unravel the molecular causes of autosomal recessive mental retardation, we have previously described a novel syndrome consisting of mental retardation, coloboma, cataract and[…][]
