About

Cleidocranial Dysplasia (CCD) is also referred to as Marie-Sainton disease or Mutational Dysostosis. This complicated sounding condition medically has the following meaning-
Advertisement

Cleido - refers to the collarbone or clavicle

Cranial - refers to the Skull

Dysplasia - refers to abnormal structure or growth of an organ.

A person affected by this condition is able to bend his shoulder at will thus giving rise to the sobriquet of the "rubber man."

The collar bone maybe partially or completely absent. Besides the collarbone and skull it can also affect pelvis and chest region. Invariably there is abnormal development of teeth. Some do not erupt and there maybe some in abnormal areas.

It is a rare condition that is often inherited from a parent in an autosomal dominant manner. This means that if one of the parent have the disease - there are 50:50 chance of each child inheriting this rare condition. Boys and girls stand an equal chance of getting affected.

The gene for the condition is located on chromosome 6.

However despite the deformity the life expectancy is normal. Women affected by the condition may have complication during delivery due to the narrow pelvis.

Prompt dental and orthodontic care maybe required in these patients.

I am 31 years old and a mum.I, too have ccd. I often worried about what I could and couldn't do. Here I am. Don't stop your son from doing the things that he really wants to do. Let him fly and if, only if, catch him if he should fall. I doubt he will fall. I bet all through his life he has had to adapt and by the age of 16 he knows too well what he can and can't do. What we can't do we make up with what we can do. I know it's hard I have seen my mum's tears fall many a time with fear for me but I assure you what doesn't kill you just makes you so much stronger, not just for you but for your son too. xx

I have CCD. This biggest issue for me is the lack of structure. Therefore my arms are weak and hurt all the time. My back will hurt unbelievable if I stand in one place fore more than 5 minutes. I wish the educated doctors would get educated about this. I am so frustated with the lack of information and what I do find is very under ratedly correct. The biggest problem is not my mouth. This about this: if you were to build a house out of 1"x1"s and take a chuck or two out of it here and there... how long do you think it would last??? Do you really think with the shoulders not being formed correctly that it would not have an effect. Did you have to think about that first? Is there anyone out there who has some common sense on the matter???

I have CCD and the information on this site is incorrect. To state that one has to have dentures in today's medical advancements is so sad. I am moderator of a yahoo Cleidocranial Dysplasia site and the truth is this is no longer a fact. Myself and my children, plus many others have been successfully treated and have their own their own gorgeous smiles. Making such a broad statement makes people who find out their child has CCD and searching for answer and have no idea what to expect with CCD feel like there is no hope and there is.
