We report on a postmortem diagnosis of perinatal lethal hypophosphatasia, an inborn error of metabolism characterized by a liver/bone/kidney alkaline phosphatase (ALP)-related defective bone mineralization due to mutations in the tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) gene. Radiological and pathological studies identified a perinatal lethal hypophosphatasia showing a generalized bone mineralization defect including asymmetry of the cervical vertebral arches in a 22 +4 weeks' gestation… CONTINUE READING
