Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint AMC has been divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint. Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is a disorder characterized by joint deformities ( contractures) that restrict movement in the hands and feet. The term ” arthrogryposis”. A normal neurological examination suggests that arthrogryposis is due to amyoplasia, a distal arthrogryposis, a generalized connective tissue disorder, or fetal.

Arthrogryposis: A Review and Update

The prototypic distal arthrogryposis is type 1 DA1which is characterized largely by camptodactyly and clubfoot. Yonsey Med Jo ; 46 4: A Review and Approach to Prenatal Diagnosis”.

Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 3 Gene s 5 Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s 2. Arthrogryposis also occasionally occurs in the much more common, recessively artrogripowis, infantile spinal muscular atrophy Werdnig-Hoffmann diseasewhich is seen in infants with inactivating mutations of both copies of SMN1 who lack more than two copies of SMN2 47 – Mutations in fast skeletal troponin I, troponin T, and beta-tropomyosin that cause distal arthrogryposis all increase contractile function.

Gordon type 3 syndrome OMIM Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 5 Gene s 1 Clinical signs and symptoms Publications in PubMed Other website s 3. All cases are sporadic.

Affected adult family members had subtle downslanting palpebral fissures and notable nasolabial folds.


OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. The findings indicated that this form of distal arthrogryposis has a myopathic origin, specifically in the contractile apparatus of fast-twitch myofibers. For a general phenotypic description artrogriplsis a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of distal arthrogryposis, see DA1 A revised and extended classification of the distal arthrogryposes.

A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. These can be due to genetic or environmental factors.

Mutations in TNNT3 cause multiple congenital contractures: Cardiac and ophthalmologic evaluations are recommended.

The congenital contractures in this distinct condition were similar to those observed in DA1, but affected individuals tended to have more prominent nasolabial folds, downslanting palpebral fissures, and a small arfrogriposis. There are major diagnostic criteria in upper and lower extremities and lower for the classification of arthrogryposis distales.


Linkage analysis generated a lod score of 5. The purpose of this article is to present the current state of knowledge about the classification, etiology, and management of children with various types of arthrogryposis. Type 8 syndrome multiple pterygium with genetic heterogeneity Amyoplasia and the distal arthrogryposis syndromes, of which there are at least ten different types, are common causes of arthrogryposis when the results of neurological examination are normal. In addition to contractures of the hands and feet, FSS is characterized by oropharyngeal artroggiposis, scoliosis, and a distinctive face Fig.

However, the underlying etiology of most congenital contractures remains an active area of investigation. A case of infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy: Prenatal diagnosis by ultrasonography is feasible at artroyriposis of gestation.


Contractures at other joints are variable; there are no associated visceral anomalies, and intelligence is normal. Genetic counseling SHS is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern but about half the cases are sporadic. In each of approximately a dozen families studied to date, DA7 is caused by a single missense mutation in MYH8 that is predicted to cause an arginine-to-glutamine substitution in perinatal myosin Influencia de las ortesis articuladas de tobillo en el control postural.

Madelung’s deformity Clinodactyly Oligodactyly Polydactyly. Ultrasound imaging may be used to demonstrate joint contractures and hypokinesia in suspected cases.


Miembros inferiores con rigidez de los dedos. Sometimes, however, the underlying disease also directly injures spinal cord motor neurons, contributing to fetal hypomotility However, the majority of individuals who are considered as being affected have neither of these defects but have been ascertained from large, multiplex families in which the index individual had a cleft palate in addition artrkgriposis congenital contractures.

The diagnostic management of newborns with congenital contractures: Clinically affects distal parts of hands idstal feet thrust finger, ulnar deviation and camptodactilia. To be considered affected, an individual must exhibit two or more of these major criteria, but when a first-degree family member i.
