Glossary for Narrow chest

Medical terms related to Narrow chest or mentioned in this section include:

  • Achondrogenesis: A type of dwarfism where the main limbs are short and the head and trunk are hydropic (contain an accumulation of clear fluid).
  • Achondroplasia regional -- dysplasia abdominal muscle: A rare syndrome characterized mainly by abnormal bone development of the ilium, ribs and abdominal muscles. The abdominal muscles tend to become more develope with increasing age.

  • Angelman-Like Syndrome, X-linked: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by mental retardation, mutism, facial anomalies, epilepsy and weak eye muscles. Males tended to have severe mental retardation whereas female carriers had mild or no mental retardation. Patients do eventually walk but then often lose this ability by the age of 10 years. Female carriers tend to have mild symptoms and males have severe symptoms - symptoms are variable to some degree.
  • Asphyxiating Thoracic Dystrophy 2: Asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy is rare syndrome characterized mainly by abnormal development of the ribcage The ribcage is restricted to the point where breathing is impaired and death during infancy is a common occurrence. Type 2 is linked to a defect on chromosome 15q13.
  • Asphyxiating Thoracic Dystrophy 3: Asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy is rare syndrome characterized mainly by abnormal development of the ribcage The ribcage is restricted to the point where breathing is impaired and death during infancy is a common occurrence.

  • Chromosome 16q, partial deletion: A rare chromosomal disorder involving deletion of genetic material from the long arm of chromosome 17. The type and severity of symptoms are determined by the amount and location of the lost genetic material.
  • Chromosome 22, trisomy: A very rare disorder where there is an extra copy of chromosome 22 in all the body cells. The condition is usually fatal soon after birth or during the fetal stage.
  • Chromosome 2p deletion syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where part or all of the short arm (p) of chromosome 2 is deleted resulting in various abnormalities which are determined by the size of the deleted portion.
  • Chromosome 8 trisomy syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where there are three copies of chromosome 8 rather than the normal two which results in various abnormalities.
  • Chromosome 8, trisomy: A rare chromosomal disorder where there are three copies of chromosome 8 rather than the normal two which results in various abnormalities. The type and severity of symptoms varies depending on the amount and exact location of the genetic material that is duplicated.
  • Chromosome 9/mosaic: A rare chromosomal disorder where chromosome 9 is duplicated in some of the body's cells resulting in various abnormalities determined by the type and number of cells that contain the extra genetic material.
  • Cloverleaf skull micromelia thoracic dysplasia: A rare disorder characterized by a cloverleaf skull deformity, small limbs and bone abnormalities of the chest and spine. The disorder is lethal.
  • Desbuquois dysplasia: A rare condition characterized by short-limbed dwarfism, characteristic facial features and skeletal abnormalities.
  • Desbuquois syndrome: A rare condition characterized by short-limbed dwarfism, characteristic facial features and skeletal abnormalities.
  • Developmental problems: Physical or mental development difficulty.
  • Emanuel syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where a portion of chromosome 11 is translocated with a portion of chromosome 22. The disorder involves a wide range of abnormalities such as kidney, genital and heart abnormalities, mental retardation, small head and failure to thrive.
  • Face symptoms: Symptoms affecting the face
