Lethal congenital contractural syndrome (LCCS)
Lethal congenital contractural syndrome (LCCS) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by congenital nonprogressive joint contractures with a severe form of arthrogryposis. LCCS is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. It has a worldwide incidence, but it is more common in isolated populations, such as Finland and the Bedouin community in Israel. Mutations in GLE1, ERBB3, and PIP5K1C are associated with LCCS.
