Learn About Robinow Syndrome

What is the definition of Robinow Syndrome?

Robinow syndrome is a rare disorder that affects the development of many parts of the body, particularly the skeleton. The types of Robinow syndrome can be distinguished by the severity of their signs and symptoms and by their pattern of inheritance: autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant.

What are the causes of Robinow Syndrome?

Autosomal recessive Robinow syndrome results from mutations in the ROR2 gene. This gene provides instructions for making a protein whose function is not well understood, although it is involved in chemical signaling pathways that are essential for normal development before birth. In particular, the ROR2 protein appears to play a critical role in the formation of the skeleton, heart, and genitals. Mutations in the ROR2 gene prevent cells from making any functional ROR2 protein, which disrupts development starting before birth and leads to the characteristic features of Robinow syndrome.

How prevalent is Robinow Syndrome?

Both the autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant forms of Robinow syndrome are rare.

Is Robinow Syndrome an inherited disorder?

As discussed above, Robinow syndrome can have either an autosomal recessive or an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.
