Short Rib Polydactyly Syndromes



Short rib-polydactyly syndromes (SRPS) are a heterogeneous group of recessively inherited lethal skeletal dysplasia. There are four classic subtypes: type I (Saldino-Noonan) (SRPS I), type II (Majewski) (SRPS II), type III (Verma-Naumoff) (SRPS III), and type IV (Beemer-Langer) (SRPS IV).
