A novel ACVR1 mutation detected by whole exome sequencing in a family with an unusual skeletal dysplasia.


"Disorganized Development of Skeletal Component" (DDSC) is a group of genetic skeletal dysplasia, caused by mutations in 9 genes including ACVR1. The most known ACVR1-related disorder is fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). FOP variants are frequently encountered with diagnostic challenges due to overlapping clinical manifestations and variable… (More)
