Acromelic frontonasal dysplasia
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Acromelic Frontonasal Dysplasia (AFND) is a variant of Frontonasal dysplasia or dysostosis (also visit: Frontonasal dysplasia.) characterized by similar head and facial abnormalities in addition to central nervous system (spinal) malformations, limb defects, extra toes, and underdeveloped shinbone. Although there is little information regarding this subtype of FND, a geneticist can help determine the best treatment which varies on a case-by-case basis depending on the specific defects present.
