Astley-Kendall Syndrome

Common Name(s)

Astley-Kendall Syndrome

Astley-Kendall syndrome is a rare disorder that affects a person’s bones. Astley-Kendall syndrome causes the person’s bones to be fragile. The affected person will also have short limbs and cartilage abnormalities (different than normal). Cartilage is the tissue that is between your joints that acts as a cushion so the bones do not scrape together when we move. In some cases Astley-Kendall syndrome can result in a stillbirth, when the baby is born dead, or in infant death, where the baby dies soon after being born. Talk with your doctor to find the best treatment if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Astley-Kendall syndrome.
