The majority of patients affected by this disease carry mutations in the PEX7 gene 6qq Biochemical studies showed moderate reduction of plasmalogen levels in plasma pnctata of plasmalogen synthesis in cultured skin fibroblasts. CC HPO: Affected children have stiff, painful joints which may lose the ability to bend normally. Mutations in the PEX7 gene can also cause an atypical phenotype with longer survival and less neurologic involvement than rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata, normal or near-normal growth, and absence of rhizomelia see PBD9B, Complete blood count, biochemical parameters, and abdominal ultrasonography were all normal.
