Acropectorovertebral dysplasia F form
Other Names: ACRPV; F syndrome; Acropectorovertebral dysplasia
A rare skeletal dysplasia characterized by fusion of the carpal and tarsal bones, with complex anomalies of the fingers and toes (preaxial polydactyly of the hands and/or feet, syndactyly of fingers and toes, hypoplasia and dysgenesis of metatarsal bones).
It has been described in less than 30 patients from three unrelated families.
The causative gene has been mapped to chromosome region 2q36.
This syndrome is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait with full penetrance.
