chondrodysplasia

 [kon″dro-dis-pla´zhah]
chondrodysplasia puncta´ta a heterogeneous group of bone dysplasias, the common characteristic of which is stippling of the epiphyses in infancy. The group includes a severe autosomal recessive form (rhizomelic dwarfism), an autosomal dominant form (Conradi-Hünermann syndrome), and a milder X-linked form.

chon·dro·dys·tro·phy

(kon'drō-dis'trō-fē),
A disturbance in the development of the cartilage primordia of the long bones, especially the region of the epiphysial plates, resulting in arrested growth of the long bones and dwarfism in which the limbs are abnormally short, but the head and trunk are essentially normal; autosomal recessive inheritance.
Synonym(s): chondrodysplasia

[kon′drōdisplā′zhə]
Etymology: Gk, chondros + dys, bad, plassein, to form

chondrodysplasia

abnormal growth of cartilage; may be used to include achondroplasia. Causes disproportionate dwarfism and occurs as an inherited trait in cattle (Dexter, Telemark lethal and 'snorter'), sheep (Ançon and Cheviot) and dogs (Alaskan malamute, miniature poodles and Norwegian elkhound). See also achondroplasia, enchondromatosis.

deforming hereditary chondrodysplasia
inherited chondrodysplastic defects characterized by skeletal deformity, e.g. chondrodysplastic dwarfism.
