Summaries for Atelosteogenesis, Type Iii

NIH Rare Diseases : 49 The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.Orpha Number: 56305Disease definitionAtelosteogenesis III (AOIII) is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by short limbs dysmorphic facies and diagnostic radiographic findings.EpidemiologyThe prevalence of AOIII is unknown. Less than 25 affected patients have been reported.Clinical descriptionAOII, like AOI, is characterized by rhizomelic limb shortness, dislocated hip, knee and elbow joints, broad hands and feet with broad digits, club feet, facial dysmorphism (midface hypoplasia, micrognathia, cleft palate). Feeding problems and cardiorespiratory insufficiency are often seen in newborns. Clinical manifestations due to secondary complications past early infancy include learning and language problems and a gross motor developmental delay.EtiologyAtelosteogenesis III results from missense mutations or small in-frame deletions in the FLNB gene reported in exons 2-5, 13 and 27-33 resulting in the translation of filamin B protein with altered biochemical properties.Diagnostic methodsThe diagnosis is established after a full skeletal x-ray survey and confirmed with genetic testing. AOIII demonstrates less delay of normal ossification compared to AOI.Antenatal diagnosisPrenatal diagnosis is possible by ultrasound from 20 weeks onward and by prenatal genetic testing in case of family history.Genetic counselingMost cases of AOIII are sporadic, but AOIII may be transmitted in an autosomal dominant manner. Affected individuals of which one of the parents presents with a milder phenotype (like Larsen syndrome) (see this term) have been reported. This is likely to be related to a somatic mosaicism in the parents for a mutation that is germline in the offspring.Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources. Last updated: 7/1/2013

MalaCards based summary : Atelosteogenesis, Type Iii, also known as atelosteogenesis type 3, is related to boomerang dysplasia and atelosteogenesis, and has symptoms including malar flattening, short neck and frontal bossing. An important gene associated with Atelosteogenesis, Type Iii is FLNB (Filamin B). Affiliated tissues include bone, testes and eye.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Atelosteogenesis 3: A short-limb lethal skeletal dysplasia with vertebral abnormalities, disharmonious skeletal maturation, poorly modeled long bones and joint dislocations. Recurrent respiratory insufficiency and/or infections usually result in early death.

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Atelosteogenesis type 3 is a disorder that affects the development of bones throughout the body. Affected individuals are born with inward- and upward-turning feet (clubfeet) and dislocations of the hips, knees, and elbows. Bones in the spine, rib cage, pelvis, and limbs may be underdeveloped or in some cases absent. As a result of the limb bone abnormalities, individuals with this condition have very short arms and legs. Their hands and feet are wide, with broad fingers and toes that may be permanently bent (camptodactyly) or fused together (syndactyly). Characteristic facial features include a broad forehead, wide-set eyes (hypertelorism), and an underdeveloped nose. About half of affected individuals have an opening in the roof of the mouth (a cleft palate.)
