Progressive pseudorheumatoid arthropathy of childhood (PPAC; MIM 208230) is an autosomal recessively inherited arthropathy due to mutations in the WISP3 gene. The WISP3 gene codes for WNT1-inducible signaling pathway protein 3. PPAC is a progressive disorder with childhood onset. Fatigue, muscle weakness, waddling gait, bowed legs and joint stiffness may be early more
