Cleidocranial dysostosis


Cleidocranial dysostosis is an autosomal dominant hereditary congenital disorder. It is characterized by incomplete ossification of the clavicles, which may be absent or more often hypoplastic. Additional features include abnormal development of the pubic bones, vertebral column, and long bones. Cranial features include frontal bossing, hypertelorism, and supernumerary teeth.
