Osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis : A further insight

Targeted gene(s)/phenotype under study :

  • AMER1

Abstract :

Osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis (OSCS) is a rare X-linked disorder due to AMER1 mutations. Males present a severe form which is usually lethal before birth. Female patients show macrocephaly, cleft palate, mild learning disabilities, sclerosis of the long bones and skull, and longitudinal striations visible on radiographs of the long bones, pelvis, and scapulae alongside other systemic anomalies.

There are about one hundred cases described in the literature.

We are looking to form a European cohort to bring further insight into OSCS and we already have 5 patients from France.
