This website provides information on patients with mutations in the PLOD3 gene, including clinical data, molecular data, management and research options.
The syndrome caused by autosomal recessive mutations in the PLOD3 gene is a multisystem disorder characterized by ocular abnormalities with risk for retinal detachment, sensorineural hearing loss, reduced palmar creases, finger contractures, prominent knees, scoliosis, low bone mineral density, distinct craniofacial features, variable developmental delay and risk for vascular dissection. Not all individuals with mutations in the PLOD3 gene have these features.
This website was created to share and collect information about clinic, management and research projects to gather more knowledge and provide better treatment of patients with mutations in the PLOD3 gene.
