Deux nouveaux cas de dyggve-melchior-c,ausen de Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen avec hypoplasie de l’apophyse odontoide et compression spinale. In contrast to Morquio syndrome, individuals with DMC have normal hearing and teeth, lack cloudy corneas and lack the urinary mucopolysaccharides, but do have intellectual disability. J Bone Joint Surg. Amer J Med Genet. Dictionary of Medical Syndromes. DYM is expressed in the majority of tissue and codes for dymeclin, a protein which interacts with membranes of the Golgi apparatus, but its role dyggve-melchoir-clausen the cell is still unknown.

Unfortunately, it is not free to produce. With age, other characteristics develop. Occurrence of three siblings. Oxford University Press; Last Edited October 1, Morphological and biochemical findings in cartilage growth zone.

A number sign is used with this entry because Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen disease DMC is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the DYM gene on chromosome 18q Often there are spinal abnormalities including lumbar lordosis and kyphosis. Bone maturation bone age is delayed Aglan et al. Other search option s Alphabetical list.

While the OMIM database is open to the public, users seeking information about a personal medical or genetic condition are urged to consult with a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to personal questions. Disease definition Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen disease DMC is a rare skeletal disorder belonging to the dytgve-melchior-clausen of spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasias see this term.


In someindividuals, ulnar deviation of the wrists abnormal bending of the hand toward the fifth finger side of the handand limited flexibility the elbows and hips may occur.

Like dymeclin, the Rab protein plays a critical role in Golgi transport.

dtggve-melchior-clausen Mutations in the same gene cause Smith-McCort dysplasia-1 The spine showed generalized platyspondyly. These procedures should be done in order to prevent damage to the cervical spinal cord, which can result in cord-related weakness or paralysis. 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.

Am J Med Gen. The disease often progresses towards orthopedic complications which can include lumbar lordosis, thoracic kyphosis, hip luxation, deformation of the knees and spinal cord compression secondary to instability of the atlas-axis.

Europ J Med Gen. Irregularities of the iliac crest gave an appearance of a lace border around it. Because of the of atlantoaxial instability found in DMC, cord compression is a concern. Kniest dysplasia is also caused by mutations in the COL2A1 gene. Histologically, both DMC and SMS exhibit deficient chondrocytic organization and differentiation, and columnar formation that contain populations of degenerating cells with rough endoplasmic reticulum inclusions Horton and Dyggfe-melchior-clausen ; Nakamura Affected newborns may be small at birth, but otherwise appear normal.

CCCCC ]. Smith-McCort syndrome usually is the result of missense mutations in the same gene Dimitrov et al.


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. Children with DMC syndrome may benefit from early intervention and special educational programs. Morphological findings in the growth plate of the iliac crest. Findings in both types may also include growth retardation, mildly course facial appearance, glaucoma, a prominent lower face, an abnormally short neck, pectus carinatum, kyphoscoliosis, platyspondyly, irregular epiphyses ends of the long bonesbroad metaphyses segments underneath syndrrome epiphysesgenu valgum, and flat feet.


The protein, dymeclin, is a protein of amino acids, and is a protein involved in the Golgi apparatus Dimitrov et at. Summary and related texts. The gene encodes for a Rab protein and the mutation lead to a marked deficiency of this protein. He emphasized prominence of the jaw and relative microcephaly.

Other radiographic abnormalities seen in DMC have been extensively reviewed by Spranger et al. Genetics of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome. This gene is involved in the production of type 2 collagen, a connective tissue protein, which dyggve-melchikr-clausen essential for the normal development of bones and other connective tissues. Furthermore, all affected children in the larger family were homozygous for a subset of marker loci within this region, defining a 1.

Both are classified as osteochondrodysplasias, specifically a spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia; this latter category of dysplasias consists of 28 separate disorders Lachmanpp. Additionally, surgical techniques may be used to correct various other skeletal abnormalities such as subluxation or dyggv-melchior-clausen of the shoulder and hip joints. Microcephaly occurs in most individuals.
