Osteopathia Striata with Cranial Sclerosis: A Face-to-Radiograph-to-Gene Diagnosis
Osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis is an X-linked dominant bone dysplasia with osteosclerosis. It should be suspected in girls with macrocephaly, intellectual disability with unique facial dysmorphic features. We described the clinical and radiological profile of a patient with this rare disorder. A novel heterozygous variant was identified in the AMER1 gene which leads to premature truncation of the AMER1 protein. Facial gestalt recognition using artificial intelligence and radiographic features were used to narrow the differential diagnosis.
