What is Antley-Bixler syndrome?
Antley-Bixler syndrome (ABS) is a rare genetic disorder characterised by skeletal malformations, especially craniofacial abnormalities. There are two forms of ABS: ABS with genital anomalies and disordered steroidogenesis, and ABS without genital anomalies and disordered steroidogenesis. These forms are two distinct disorders caused by mutations in the POR gene or the FGFR2 gene, respectively.
