Jeune syndrome [Supplementary Concept]

A group of hereditary autosomal recessive skeletal ciliopathies (Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, Jeune syndrome, short rib-polydactyly syndrome, and Mainzer-Saldino syndrome) that are characterized by a constricted thoracic cage, short ribs, shortened tubular bones, and a 'trident' appearance of the roof of the ACETABULUM. POLYDACTYLY is variably present, and there is phenotypic overlap in the various forms, which differ by visceral malformation and metaphyseal appearance. Nonskeletal involvement can include cleft lip/palate as well as anomalies of major organs, brain, and genitalia. Severity ranges from neonatal lethality to mild adult disability. OMIM: 208500
