OMIA:002711-9685 : Patellar fracture and dental anomaly syndrome in Felis catus (domestic cat)

Categories: Skeleton phene (incl. short stature & teeth)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific name: knees and teeth syndrome

Species-specific symbol: PADS

Clinical features: Bell et al. (2023): "PADS is clinically characterized by insufficiency fractures of the patella and in many cases fractures of other bones, persistent deciduous teeth, and unerupted permanent teeth [Langley-Hobbs & Ball, 2005; Langley-Hobbs, 2009; Reyes et al., 2019; Howes et al., 2019]. Clinical and radiographic abnormalities in the skull and dentition of cats with PADS have been reported with osteomyelitis as a potential complication [Howes et al., 2019]."
