Bone Dysplasia Corpus Callosum Agenesis

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Bone Dysplasia – Corpus Callosum Agenesis is a form of skeletal disorder characterized by abnormal cell growth in the skeletal system and abnormal brain development. Bones are important for maintaining the structure of the body and work closely with muscles to provide various movements. Thus, individuals with this disorder may become less capable of performing important movements, like walking and running. In addition, abnormal brain development can lead to intellectual disability. Individuals may have problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. Doctors are usually able to diagnose this disorder at birth, as the intellectual disability and bone problems are quickly apparent. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. For prevention purposes, bone specialists may suggest individuals eat a high-calcium diet, and exercise regularly. If an individual’s skeletal problems has progressed, doctors may suggest surgery to fix bone problems. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
