Craniometaphyseal dysplasia (CMD) is a rare genetic bone remodeling disorder; Its main characteristics are undertubulation of the long bones, especially in the lower extremities causing deformities of the metaphyses in association with sclerosis or hyperostosis of the bones of the skull base (Schroder et al;, 1992; Yamamoto et al;, 1993; Rimseyer et al, 1993); Broadening of the short tubular bones with metaphyseal and diaphyseal abnormalities and, sometimes, diaphyseal expansion and widening of the ribs and clavicles (Langer et al;, 1991) may also be observed in this syndrome; Craniometaphyseal dysplasia occurs in autosomal dominant and recessive forms; The dominant form due to one copy of the gene is more common and less severe; The gene in chromosome region 5p15;2p14_1 is the ANK gene which encodes a protein involved in the transport of pyrophosphate into the bone matrix; Pyrophosphate levels are critical for the regulation of bone mineralization; The gene for the recessive form is in a different location, in chromosome region 6q21-22; Its function is not yet known; Common Misspellings: craniometaphyseal displasia, craniometaphyseal diplasia
