Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by extraskeletal, predominantly endochondreal, bone formation. The patients are progressivly disabled because of skeletal malformations.

Epidemiology

The prevalence is 1 per 1-2,000,000. Most cases occur sporadically as severe bode deformations reduce the chances to reproduce.[Error: Macro 'ref' doesn't exist]

Symptoms

Heterotopic Ossification
In fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) heterotopic bone formation is localized in tendons, ligaments, skeletal muscles and fascia. Before the appearance of bone like tissues tumor-like inflammation (“flare-ups”) is observed.

Systematic

Inherited human diseases of heterotopic bone formation
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva
ACVR1
Hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis
Progressive osseous heteroplasia
