Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Geleophysic dysplasia is an extremely rare acromelic skeletal dysplasia resembling lysosomal storage disease. It is characterised by characteristic facial phenotype, short stature, micromelia, joint contracture, and early cardiac valvular involvement. It has been described worldwide in <40 patients. Herein, we describe the cardiac features in three Saudi sisters with proved autosomal recessive geleophysic dysplasia who showed different levels of severity of their cardiac involvement.
