|Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, Pakistani type is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner|
This condition is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by short stature, mild brachydactyly, kyphoscoliosis, abnormal gait, enlarged knee joints, precocious osteoarthropathy, platyspondyly, delayed epiphyseal ossification, mild metaphyseal abnormalities, short stature and short and bowed legs. Intelligence is normal.
This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. It is due to mutations in the Bifunctional 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate synthetase 2 (PAPSS2) gene which is located on the long arm of chromosome 10 (10q22-q24).
Radiographic features include delayed epiphyseal ossification at the hips and knees, platyspondyly with irregular end plates and narrowed joint spaces, diffuse early osteoarthritic changes (in the spine and hands), mild brachydactyly and mild metaphyseal abnormalities which predominantly involve the hips and knees.
This condition was first described in a large eight generation consanguineous Pakistani family.
The causative mutation was identified in 1998.
