Background: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a heterogeneous connective tissue disorder characterized by increased bone fragility and a series of extraskeletal manifestations. Approximately 90 % of OI cases are caused by type I collagen variants encoded by the collagen type I alpha 1 (COL1A1) or type I alpha 2 (COL1A2) gene. Lumbar Scheuermann's disease is an atypical type of Scheuermann's disease accompanied by Schmorl's nodes and irregular endplates but without pronounced kyphosis. Read More

Genetic Disorders of Bone or Osteodystrophies of Jaws-A Review.

Glob Med Genet 2021 Jun 15;8(2):41-50. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

Department of Oral Pathology, Tirumala Institute of Dental Sciences, Nizamabad, Telangana, India.

Bone is a specialized form of connective tissue, which is mineralized and made up of approximately 28% type I collagen and 5% noncollagenous matrix proteins. The properties of bone are very remarkable, because it is a dynamic tissue, undergoing constant renewal in response to mechanical, nutritional, and hormonal influences. In 1978, "The International Nomenclature of Constitutional Diseases of Bone" divided bone disorders into two broad groups: osteochondrodysplasias and dysostoses. Read More

Orthopädisches Zentrum für Muskuloskeletale Forschung, Universität Würzburg, Brettreichstr. 11, 97074, Würzburg, Deutschland.

Delineating the genetic background and the underlying pathophysiology of rare skeletal dysplasias enables a broader understanding of these disorders as well as novel perspectives regarding differential diagnosis and targeted development of therapeutic approaches. Hypophosphatasia (HPP) due to genetically determined Alkaline Phosphatase deficiency exemplifies this development. While an enzyme replacement therapy could be established for severe HPP with the prevailing bone manifestation, the clinical impact of not immediately bone-related manifestations just being successively understood.
