Osteochondrodysplasia

A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

The term osteochondrodysplasia is usually used synonymously with skeletal dysplasia, and merely means a dysplasia involving bone and cartilage.

These conditions typically affect collagen metabolism, and often found as part of a skeletal dysplasia syndrome (e.g. Cantu sydnrome)1-3. As such the term osteochondrodysplasia should not be used as a specific diagnosis.
