Bruck syndrome 2 (BRKS2; MIM 609220) is an autosomal recessively inherited disorder characterized by congenital joint contractures and multiple fractures in infancy and childhood. Additional findings include kyphoscoliosis, pectus, short stature, angular deformities of long bones, persistent osteopenia, pterygia, and clubfoot. The fracture frequency decreases with skeletal maturity but the spine deformities are more
