Parietal foramina 2

Common Name(s)

Parietal foramina 2

Parietal foramina-2 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by bilateral parietal foramina in the skull. Some patients with PFM2 may also have mild features of frontonasal dysplasia, including hypertelorism or nose abnormalities (summary by {1:Altunoglu et al., 2014}). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of parietal foramina, see PFM1 ({168500}).
