Chondrocalcinosis 2

Common Name(s)

Chondrocalcinosis 2

Chondrocalcinosis, or cartilage calcification, is a common condition that usually results from deposition of crystals of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) in articular hyaline and fibro-cartilage. CPPD crystal deposition may be asymptomatic or associated with characteristic acute attacks ('pseudogout') or chronic arthritis. It can be detected radiographically. Chondrocalcinosis occurs in 3 forms: a primary hereditary form (e.g., CCAL2); a form associated with metabolic disorders (e.g., hyperparathyroidism, hemochromatosis, and hypomagnesemia), and a sporadic form, which may in some cases represent the hereditary form (summary by {16:Hughes et al., 1995} and {30:Richette et al., 2009}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Chondrocalcinosis Another form of chondrocalcinosis (CCAL1; {600668}) has been mapped to chromosome 8q.
