Brachydactyly Elbow Wrist Dysplasia
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Brachydactyly Elbow Wrist Dysplasia, also known as Liebenberg Syndrome, is a rare set of birth defects, or a syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by short fingers or toes, and elbow and wrist abnormalities. This syndrome is inherited and is autosomal dominant, meaning that it is passed from parents to their children and that if one of the parents has the disorder, there is a 50% chance the child will have it too. Treatment varies on a case-by-case basis and depends on the type of birth defects present.
