Am J Hum Genet. Homozygosity mapping of a Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome gene to chromosome 18q Smith-McCort syndrome usually is the result of missense mutations in the same gene Dimitrov et al.

Management requires both a multidisciplinary approach and a long-term follow-up as the disease is progressive. Electron microscopy demonstrated chondrocytes with dilated cisternae of rough endoplasmic reticulum RER containing fine granular or amorphous material similar to what had been reported in cases of DMC syndrome.

Rare Disease Database

Amer J Med Genet. The gene now most commonly is referred to as DYM. Syndromme there usually is normal intelligence, there may be delay in waking and a waddling gait. 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. Like dymeclin, the Rab protein plays a critical role in Golgi transport.

KEGG DISEASE: Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen disease and Smith-McCort dysplasia

Last Edited October 1, Am J Med Genet. A histological study of the growth plate. The Johns Hopkins University. Prenatal diagnosis of DMC has been accomplished by finding a pathogenic homozygous mutation in the DYM gene in a fetus with no detectable physical findings Toru et al. Analysis of 3 small, unrelated families with DMC dyggve-melchjor-clausen provided evidence of linkage to the same region, a result consistent with the hypothesis that the 2 disorders are allelic.


For instance, chest deformities, feeding difficulties and developmental delay usually are manifest by or syndromw 18 months. Genetics of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome. Europ J Med Gen. As affected individuals age, growth deficiency results in short stature dwarfismin part, due to a disproportionately short neck and trunk, and coxa vara a hip deformity in which the femur [thigh bone] is angled toward the midline of the body.

Spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, Sundrome type, is a rare disorder characterized by dyggve-melcior-clausen stature with a short neck and trunk, scoliosis or kyphoscoliosis, short hands and feet and limited joint movement associated with an abnormal gait. Kniest dysplasia is also caused by mutations in the COL2A1 gene.

Differential diagnosis Differential diagnoses include Smith-McCort syndrome SMC; see this termwhich presents with the same clinical and radiological features as DMC but without intellectual deficiency, and Morquio disease or mucopolysaccharidosis type 4, MPS IV; see this termwhich is clinically similar but has specific radiological and enzymatic signs.

Interestingly, disease producing mutations in this gene are scattered throughout the gene El Ghouzzi et al. Causes Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Morquio syndrome mucopolysaccharidosis type IV; MPS IV exists in two forms Morquio syndromes A and B and occurs because of a deficiency of the enzymes, N-acetylgalactosaminesulfatase and beta-galactosidase, respectively. The growth plate showed abnormal enchondral ossification with no columnarization of chondrocytes.

With age, other characteristics develop. Alone we are rare. Subsequently, Spranger suggested that this family had dyggve-melchior-cllausen dysplasia tarda, a well-established X-linked disorder.

The Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome in Indian siblings. About News Events Contact. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. Pseudoachondroplasia is due to mutations of the cartilage oligomeric matrix protein COMP gene, and as such, is allelic to some cases of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia i. Indian J Psych Med; ; Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and is produced by a mutation in the collagen II COL2A1 gene.

DMC appears to be produced mostly by premature truncation of the DYM product resulting in complete or nearly complete absence of dymeclin production from both DYM genes. Both are classified as osteochondrodysplasias, specifically a spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia; this latter category of dysplasias consists of 28 separate disorders Lachmanpp.

Six years experience of tertiary center. When it occurs, spinal cord compression in the neck is usually caused by the hypoplasia of the odontoid process and to hyperlaxity of dyggve-melchiorclausen longitudinal ligament of the upper cervical spine.
