Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is an autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia characterised by abnormal clavicles, patent sutures and fontanelles, supernumerary teeth, short stature, and a variety of other skeletal change. Cleidocranial dysplasia is caused by mutation in the gene on 6p21 encoding transcription factor CBFA1, i.e. runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2). Individuals with CCD should be followed by either a team of specialist or by individual specialist familiar with the problems that can be associated with this condition.
