Stanescu type dysostosis is a rare form of osteosclerosis.
So far it has been described in around 30 patients from three families.
It is characterized by craniofacial dysostosis with a small cranium and thin skull bone, depressions over the frontoparietal and occipitoparietal sutures, marked hypoplasia of mandible, exophthalmos, cortical sclerosis of the long bones and normal intelligence. The long bones are short and bent, and thickening of bone cortex occurs during the pubertal and post-pubertal periods and increases with age.
The syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.
