Overview

Nager acrofacial dysostosis is a genetic disorder that affects the limbs and face. The signs and symptoms of Nager acrofacial dysostosis vary among affected individuals, even among those in the same family.[1][2] Treatment is tailored to the individual based upon their specific needs.[2] This condition is caused by mutations in the SF3B4 gene.[1] While most cases are sporadic (occurring in families with no prior history of the disorder), autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive inheritance have been reported.[3]
