Cutis laxa with osteodystrophy

Common Name(s)

Cutis laxa with osteodystrophy

Autosomal recessive cutis laxa type II represents a spectrum of clinical entities with variable severity of cutis laxa, abnormal growth, developmental delay, and associated skeletal abnormalities. Aside from cutis laxa, persistent wide fontanels, frontal bossing, slight oxycephaly, downward-slanted palpebral fissures, reversed-V eyebrows, and dental caries are characteristic. Patients with ARCL2 can be divided into 2 major groups: ARCL2A, comprising those with a combined N- and O-linked glycosylation defect (CDG type II), and ARCL2B, those without a metabolic disorder (summary by {14:Morava et al., 2009}). {26:Van Maldergem et al. (2008)} concluded that ARCL2A should be considered more of a multisystem disorder with cobblestone-like brain dysgenesis manifesting as developmental delay and an epileptic neurodegenerative syndrome rather than purely a dermatologic disorder. For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of autosomal recessive cutis laxa, see ARCL1A ({219100}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Cutis Laxa Type II ARCL2A is caused by mutation in the ATP6V0A2 gene. ARCL2B ({612940}) is caused by mutation in the PYCR1 gene ({179035}).
