Abstract

The skeletal dysplasias or osteochondrodysplasias (OCD) are a heterogenous group of genetic conditions with high morbimortality that produce important changes in the growth and development of the skeletal system. In general, these conditions lead to short stature and several of them, also present important joint and spine alterations. In addition to the task of classifying and delineating new OCD and dysostosis phenotypes, in the last 25 years we have assisted the fantastic evolution in the identification of the molecular basis of these conditions. Because of the quickness of these molecular discoveries, currently more than 60% of the OCD are associated with mutation in known genes. In spite of the improvement regarding the knowledge of the OCD molecular basis, many conditions still need to be etiologically identified. In addition, novel conditions continue to be recognized. From the accumulated experience in the last years the local group is in position to increasing the investigation regarding the OCD. Therefore, the goal of the present investigation is to introducing the new genetic technologies like the next generation sequencing (NGS) to the investigation of the OCD and dysostosis, trying to identify the molecular bases of these conditions. Likewise, this study aims to exploring the genotype-phenotype correlation among the still poorly characterized OCD and dysostosis. Finally, the results of the present study can help us to outline, at least partially, the OCD clusters in Brazil. (AU)
