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 delineati...

The CYP26B1 gene is responsible for the retinoic acid (RA) metabolization whose role in the embryonic development is particularly important in the skeletogenesis and, mainly in the axial skeleton and in the craniofacial region. As demonstrated in animal models, mutations in this gene generate an increasing of RA in the embryo affecting the normal organogenesis and producing several malf...
The skeletal dysplasias or osteochondrodysplasias (OCD) are a group of diseases affecting both, growth and development of the skeletal system, and are characterized by great clinical and genetic heterogeneity. Despite the great heterogeneity and complexity of these conditions the diagnosis begins with the history, clinical examination and radiography, however, for differential diagnosis...
