Number of Panel Genes: 

Spondylodysplastic Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDSSPD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the B3BALT6, B4BALT7 and SLC39A13 genes. Clinical features may include short stature, muscle hypotonia, facial dysmorphism, blue slerae, osteopenia, platyspondyly, pes planus, and thin, translucent, fragile skin. Joint hypermobility, joint dislocations and joint contractures, especially in hands, are also common findings.
