Atelosteogenesis type III: long term survival, prenatal diagnosis, and evidence for dominant transmission.

Author information

Department of Medical Genetics, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 53705, USA.


We describe two additional instances of atelosteogenesis, type III, in a woman and her son. Clinical and radiographic information concerning these individuals allows further definition of this rare skeletal dysplasia. This is the first documentation of survival to adulthood of an individual with this disorder, of prenatal diagnostic assessment of an affected individual, and of vertical transmission suggestive of autosomal dominant inheritance. The clinical and radiologic phenotype of atelosteogenesis, type III overlaps with that of another skeletal dysplasia, autosomal dominant Larsen syndrome; these most likely represent allelic conditions.
