It is important to note that patients with diagnosis ofrhizomelic CDP should undergo ambulatorial follow-up, as, inspite of the current inexistence of specific treatment, manyclinical manifestations, like alopecia, puncata and condfodisplasia not be present at the moment of the diagnosis, showing upwith the progress of the disease.

Peroxisomal diseases are a group of monogenic disorders that include defects in peroxisome biogenesis or enzyme dificiencies. The main characteristics described in the literature aresymmetric and severe rhizomelic micromelia proximal shorteningof limbs ; punctate calcifications and long bones metaphyseal andepiphyseal ossification changes; punctate calcifications andcoronal clefts in vertebral bodies of the thoracic and lumbarspine; microcephaly and growth retardation, psychomotor delay,spasticity and precocious death 5,6, Summary and related texts.


Molecular diagnosis is recommended, if available. This enzyme takes part of the oxidation of fatty acids, with the subsequent accumulation of its substrate, phytanic acid.

Routinelaboratory tests as well as those performed for investigatingcongenital infections were normal. Preterm-born from consanguineous parents primiparous mother ,the patient has presented a series of clinical and radiologicalfindings suggesting a CDP diagnosis.

If the patient has swallowing disorders, gastrostomy is indicated. However, another typical finding in this type ofchondrodysplasia is microcephaly, which has shown to be quiteaccentuated, considering the values very below than normal.

There is usually no effect on life-expectancy rarely scoliosis can compromise cardiac and pulmonary function but quality of life may be severely affected. Respiratory function should be monitored, vaccination for pneumococcus and influenza is also suggested.


Genetic counseling CDPX2 is inherited in an X-linked dominant manner and genetic counseling is possible. However, there are patients who have the same mutation, but they vary in some clinical signs, thus, the cause of these differences are totally unknown yet 5,7,9. Management and treatment There is no specific treatment for the enzyme defect. Professionals Clinical genetics review English Follicular atrophoderma is particularly common on the trunk, forearms and dorsal aspect of the hands.
