Additional abnormalities have been reported in association with CZS, including coronal hypospadias, bilateral cryptorchidism, respiratory distress, hypoglycemia, both increased muscle tone and mild hyperreflexia as well as decreased muscle tone, bilateral acetabular dysplasia, amyoplasia of the lower limbs, and pulmonary hypoplasia.
Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint contractures and muscle weakness.
Special facies or facial asymmetry, skin manifestations, fundus pigmentry abnormalities, facial palsy, musculoskeletal abnormalities (aplasia of the first two ribs, lack of differentiation of the small carpal bones, cystic formation of the sacrum, abnormalities of arms like amyoplasia and stiffness of the joints, and cutaneous syndactyly), microcephaly, mental retardation and hirschsprung disease have also been revealed in the literature.
