A deficiency in EBP leads to ppunctata accumulation of 8-dehydrocholesterol 8DHC and 8 9 -cholestenol in the skin, plasma and other body tissues. Chondrodysplasia punctata type 2 OMIM: Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 7 Gene s 1 Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s 8. Disease definition Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia is a form chondrodysplasia punctata see this terma group of diseases in which the common characteristic is calcifications near joints at birth.

In Latin America the reports of this disease are scarce, which makes difficult to make a correct diagnosis of each particular case 14,15due to the variability of disease expression and the phenomena such conrdodisplasia heterogeneity of loci.

Condrodisplasia punctata rizomélica: relato de caso e breve revisão da literatura

Microphthalmia, microcornea and epicanthus have been reported. Female, two-month-old infant, has been referred to thePediatrics Service of Hospital de Base Ary Pinheiro, Porto Velho,RO, Brazil, because of tachypnea and history of frequent chokingsafter breastfeeding, as well as evident anatomical alterations inface and limbs.

Summary and related texts. According to RCDP1, it is defined as a malfunction in the peroxin receptor number 7, because it generates its particular phenotype. This clinical case does not count on the molecular study, since their health insurer did not authorize its realization. Clinical Case A month-old male patient figure 1with no history or background of major diseases in his family or relatives. Today, the CDPdiagnosis is made by means of clinical analysis concomitant withbiochemical and radiological findings.

Management and treatment There is condrodisplaeia specific treatment for the enzyme defect. CDP, usually consisting convrodisplasia epiphyseal stippling, is the fundamental radiological finding.

Joint contractures affecting the hips, hands and feet are frequent. It is important to note that patients with diagnosis ofrhizomelic CDP should undergo ambulatorial follow-up, as, inspite of the current inexistence of specific treatment, manyclinical manifestations, like alopecia, ichthyosis and cataracts,might not be present at the moment of the diagnosis, showing upwith the progress of condrodisplasiia disease.


Another enzyme, acyldihydroxyacetone phosphate synthase ADHAPSis also affected in the disease, causing the decrease of its product, plasmalogens Due to the mutation of the PEX7 gene, plasma erythrocyte concentration is decreased, together with plasma phytanic acid elevation Tables 1 and 2 ; In this clinical case, a discrete elevation of C Enfermedad peroxisomal, condrodisplasia rizomelica punctata tipo 1, reporte de caso.

Thepresence of vertebral clefts, radiotransparent, longitudinal zoneobserved in the lateral view, previously described as invariablein cases of rhizomelic CDP, has not been present cpndrodisplasia three of fivecases analyzed by Wardinsky et al. Molecular diagnosis is recommended, if available.

The patient was released from the hospital withclinical-radiological diagnosis of CDP. Some other abnormalities may occur in the eustachian tube, otitis media, and even hearing loss Condrodisplasia Punctata en un lactante.

Regarding punctate calcifications of the cartilage, although they constitute a key radiological finding, they are temporary and they will not be evident after the first or second year of life Clinical description Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia is associated with shortness of the femur and humerus, vertebral disorders, cataract, cutaneous lesions and severe intellectual deficit.

The authors present a case of a 2-month-old infant affected by the recessive form of chondrodysplasia punctata, a rare condition radiologically characterized by severe proximal shortening and anomalous ossification epiphyseal stippling of the limbs.

PEX genes encode a series of proteins called peroxins, essential in the process of forming peroxisomes. The plasmatic level of phytanic acidis high, and the plasmalogen synthesis in fibroblast anderythrocytes is reduced 2,4,8,9.

Genetic counseling CDPX2 is inherited in an X-linked dominant manner and genetic counseling is possible.

Bucaramanga, Colombia c Physician. A clinical case report and review of the literature. Etiology The disease is caused by defective peroxisome metabolism. The treatment is basically supportive, since the disease has a poor prognosis. The presence of congenital cataracts requires surgical correction. Also fatty condrodisplaska phytanic and pristanic increased levels.

We would like also to highlight the importance condfodisplasia early diagnosis in cases of dysmorphological alterations at birth, especially in those involving severe malformations, whether single or multiple.

A month-old male patient figure 1with no history or background of major diseases in his family or relatives. Presently,the patient is being kept in ambulatorial follow-up in ourinstitution. Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata – case report.

Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis is feasible when the causative mutation has already been identified in the family. A case of CDP is presented, with a description of the two mainvariations autosomal recessive and dominant based on a briefreview of the existent literature about this diseaseetiopathogenesis, clinical-radiological and laboratorymanifestations.

Other clinical findings are difficulties for breastfeedig, swallowing, a depressed nasal bridge, maxillofacial hypoplasia, anteverted nostrils, long filtrum. Clinical diagnosis, biochemical findings and MRI spectrum of peroxisomal disorders. N Engl J Med ; On radiographic studies, we have observed: Prognosis There is usually no effect on life-expectancy rarely scoliosis can compromise cardiac and pulmonary function but quality of life may punctatz severely affected.

The diagnosis is based on the clinical picture, also on laboratory tests given by biochemical tests such as determination of long fatty acids chains in plasma, plasmalogen levels, condrodizplasia others, and based on molecular diagnostic tests, if they are possible to perfom.

Surgery intervention at seven months old for bilateral cataract. There is some life expectancy,although early fetal death also occurs. These condrodisplasiaa peroxisomal targeting signal peptides, PTS1 and PTS2, which work as intermediaries in the importation of proteins into the peroxisome 4,5. Impaired neuronal migration and endochondral ossification in Pex7 knockout mice: Am J Hum Genet.

The mortality rate of this disease is focused on the first year of life Disease definition X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata CDPX2 is a rare genodermatosis with great phenotypic variation and characterized most commonly by ichthyosis, chondrodysplasia punctata CDPpknctata shortening of the limbs, cataracts and short stature.
