Pycnodysostosis (PKND; MIM 265800) is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal disease with short stature, osteosclerosis and increased bone fragility. Craniofacial findings include persistent open anterior fontanelle, frontal bossing and micrognathia.  Patients often have acro-osteolysis of the terminal phalanges. PKND is caused by mutations in the cathepsin K gene (CTSK). Cathepsin K is a member of the papain family of cysteine proteinases.read more
