Glossary for Short trunk

Medical terms related to Short trunk or mentioned in this section include:

  • Anauxetic dysplasia: A rare disorder characterized by abnormal skeletal and spinal development.
  • Atelosteogenesis Type III: A very rare inherited skeletal ossification disorder. Unlike types I and II, survival past infancy is possible in type III.
  • Bone symptoms: Symptoms affecting the body's bones
  • Brachyolmia: A syndrome characterized mainly by short trunk dwarfism. There are several different subtypes, each with different additional features.
  • Brachyolmia, recessive Hobaek type: A rare bone disorder characterized by a short trunk dwarfism.
  • Child health symptoms: Symptoms related to pediatric (child) health.
  • Cockayne syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by a senile-like appearance, hearing and vision impairment and sun sensitive skin.
  • Developmental problems: Physical or mental development difficulty.
  • Diaphanospondylodysostosis: A rare disorder characterized by bone formation anomalies including a lack of bone formation in the spine during the fetal stage as well as kidney problems.
  • Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen Syndrome: A rare genetic bone growth disorder characterized by short stature and other skeletal deformities.
  • Growth symptoms: Symptoms related to poor or excessive growth.
  • Hutterite cerebroosteonephrodysplasia syndrome: A very rare disorder characterized by short stature and a severe degenerative brain disorder.
  • Infant symptoms: Symptoms affecting babies and infants.
  • MPS-IV (Morquio Disease): A condition which is characterized by biochemically distinct mucopolysaccharidosis
  • Mental retardation -- skeletal dysplasia -- abducens palsy: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by mental retardation, skeletal abnormalities and weakness of an eye muscle.
  • Metatropic dwarfism: A rare genetic disorder characterized by extremely small stature, short limbs and skeletal abnormalities.
  • Morquio syndrome: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (galactosamine-?-sulfate - type A, ? galactosidase - type B) needed to break it down. The symptoms are variable with type A and B being clinically indistinguishable.
  • Morquio syndrome type A: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (galactosamine-?-sulfate) needed to break it down.
  • Morquio syndrome, type B: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (? galactosidase) needed to break it down.
  • Mucopolysaccharidoses: A lysosomal storage disorder that is caused by a deficiency of the ability to metabolise glycosaminoglycans
  • Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
  • Nonkeratan-sulfate-excreting Morquio syndrome: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of certain enzymes needed to break it down. This disorder is distinguished form other similar conditions by the fact that no keratosulfate is excreted in the urine.
  • Poor growth: Poor body growth or delayed physical development.
  • Roifman syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized by abnormal bone growth, immune deficiency and an eye disorder.
  • Silverman-Handmaker syndrome: A condition characterized by dwarfism, hydrocephalus, facial abnormalities and a narrow chest. The condition results in death during or soon after birth and is a more severe form of Rolland-Debuquois syndrome.
  • Skeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skeletal system such as the bones.
  • Spondylo-ocular syndrome: A rare, recessively inherited syndrome characterized mainly by eye and spinal abnormalities.
  • Spondylocarpotarsal synostosis: A rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature, fusion of toe and finger bones and failure of spinal segmentation.
  • Spondylocostal dysostosis, autosomal recessive 1: A rare, recessively inherited syndrome characterized mainly by rib and spine abnormalities. This form is severe and often results in infant death.
  • Spondylocostal dysostosis, autosomal recessive 2: A rare, recessively inherited syndrome characterized mainly by rib and spine abnormalities resulting in a short trunk and neck as well as long thin fingers.
  • Spondylocostal dysostosis, autosomal recessive 3: A rare, recessively inherited syndrome characterized mainly by rib and spine abnormalities resulting in a short trunk and neck.
  • Spondylocostal dysplasia dominant: A rare, dominantly inherited syndrome characterized mainly by rib and spine abnormalities.
  • Spondyloenchondrodysplasia: A rare genetic disorder where abnormal bone development resluts in symptoms such as flattened spine bones, short stature, large joints and other anomalies. The disorder is also characterized by the development of benign cartilage growths in bones which affects it's growth and strength.
  • Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, X-linked: A rare skeletal disorder where the spine and long bones grow and develop abnormally. The trunk and fingers are short.
  • Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia: A rare bone growth disorder affecting the spine and ends of bones and resulting in short stature.
  • Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda: A rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature and skeletal abnormalities which are usually not apparent before 12 years.
  • Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda, Toledo type: A rare bone development disorder caused by a deficiency of chondroitin sulfate. The short stature tends to be moderate and an eye abnormality is also usually present.
  • Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda, autosomal dominant: A rare genetic disorder where abnormal bone development primarily involves the spine and epiphyses (end of long bones where growth occurs).
  • Spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, Kozlowski type: A rare genetic disorder characterized by reduced calcification of the spine and pelvis resulting in short stature.
  • Strudwick syndrome: An inherited bone growth disorder characterized by short stature, bone abnormalities and vision problems. The bone abnormalities are due to a genetic mutation that affects the development of bone and connective tissue.
  • Trunk conditions: Medical condition affecting the trunk of the body.
  • Verloes Bourguignon syndrome: A condition which is characterised by skeletal dysplasia with amelogenesis imperfecta and platyspondyly
