    Occipital horn syndrome,
    one of the forms of Ehlers Danlos syndrome, inherited as an X-linked recessive trait. This variety involves a defect of copper metabolism leading to skeletal dysplasia. Some of its manifestations are unlike those seen in any other form of Ehlers – Danlos syndrome. Parasagittal bone exostoses arising from the occipital bone, boxlike deformities of the elbow, radial head dislocation, hammer-shaped lateral ends of the clavicles, and abnormalities of the hips and pelvis are among the radiographic features of this disease.

    So does this mean I am like retarded but managed to make it through half way to an associate's degree.

    I don't get this one. It makes a lot of sense to me.

    I don't know why patient's especially women are not given copies of their lab reports.

    Men suffer too, don't get me wrong, by no means am I saying that.

    Knowledge sets you free. I have been trying to find out about about endentous mandibular problems and came across your mentioned condition. I wish I had written down the site concerning the above.

    I read enough to scare the be-geebers out of this Texas gal! I can get NO answers. Not my doc, not the oral surgeon, who ck'd things yesterday (he had surgically removed them Monday week, with minimal nerve damage, but since I take 10/500...HELLO! I go Friday to be fitted for dentures if she can't see me sooner.

    What next? Cactus.

    I am woefully inadequate to comment on this. Sorry I can't help you with it.

    Love, Mikie
