Langer-Giedion syndrome, also known as Trichorhinophalangeal Syndrome Type II, is a genetic condition that causes bone abnormalities and distinctive facial features. The cause of Langer Giedion syndrome is having multiple benign bone tumors called extoses which results in limited range of joint movement, and pressure on the nerves, blood vessels, the spinal cord, and the tissues surrounding the extoses. Appearance wise affected individuals have short stature, sparse scalp hair, a rounded nose, a long flat area between the nose and the upper lip, and a thin upper lip. People with Langer Giedion syndrome may also have some intellectual disabilities. Langer Giedion syndrome is extremely rare and has no cure or treatment.
