Chondrocalcinosis 2 (CCAL2; MIM 118600), also known as calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease (CPPDD), is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the ANKH gene. In general, chondrocalcinosis is characterized by the deposition of calcium containing crystals in joints which can cause recurrent acute attacks of joint pain and synovitis (pseudogout). If chronic, this can lead to degenerative joint disease.read more
