The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) provides the following list of features that have been reported in people with this condition. Much of the information in the HPO comes from Orphanet, a European rare disease database. If available, the list includes a rough estimate of how common a feature is (its frequency). Frequencies are based on a specific study and may not be representative of all studies. You can use the MedlinePlus Medical Dictionary for definitions of the terms below.

Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers. These groups often raise awareness, provide support, and develop patient-centered information. Many are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct people to research, resources, and services. Many groups also have experts who serve as medical advisors. Visit their website or contact them to learn about the services they offer. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by GARD.
Living with a genetic or rare disease can impact the daily lives of patients and families. These resources can help families navigate various aspects of living with a rare disease.
These resources provide more information about this condition or associated symptoms. The in-depth resources contain medical and scientific language that may be hard to understand. You may want to review these resources with a medical professional.

I am 60 years old, and have not been diagnosed with this. However I have lived in the dark with many of the symptoms. I live in constant pain, and numerous doctors over the years could not tell me what is wrong with me. My question is how and where can I get genetic testing? It's too late for any help for me, however my daughter is about to have her first child, and I am worried my granddaughter may have the RUN2 gene. See answer
My 25-year-old son has cleidocranial dysplasia. His condition is mild, but he has endured treatments for hearing loss and orthodontic conditions. We were told at the time of his diagnosis that his children would have a 50/50 chance of inheriting this condition. Is that still the case? Are there any treatments or therapies to prevent him from passing this on?
My daughter and I have cleidocranial dysplasia. Can you help us with information on treatment of our disease?
