OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to publish a literature review and report on a new case of cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome with 6p21.1-p12.3 microdeletion. DESIGN: A PubMed search using "cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome (CCD)" or "6p microdeletion" was performed. Articles with information relevant to our case were obtained for review. A new case of cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome is presented to describe and discuss clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, clinical progression of cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome, and management. RESULTS: There were 22 articles with reports of cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome or 6p microdeletion. Cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, documented to have an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern and caused by caused by mutations of the transcription factor RUNX2. RUNX2 has been mapped to chromosome 6p21. The anomalies in cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome can involve not only the clavicle and skull but the entire skeleton because the membranous as well as endochondral bone formation may be affected. Upon follow-up, our patient was found to have global developmental delay. CONCLUSIONS: We report a near-term neonate with characteristic features of cleidocranial dysplasia and a 6p21.1-p12.3 microdeletion. Cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia. The mutation of the RUNX2 gene results in cleidocranial dysplasia syndrome.
