How To Remember Aase syndrome Signs & Symptoms?
Aase syndrome, also known as Aase-Smith syndrome or hereditary multiple exostoses, is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the presence of multiple bone tumors called exostoses. These tumors can occur anywhere in the body, but are most commonly found on the long bones of the arms and legs, as well as the pelvis and spine.
The signs and symptoms of Aase syndrome may vary widely, depending on the number and location of the exostoses. However, some common signs and symptoms may include:
- Pain and tenderness at the site of the exostoses
- Limitation of movement or difficulty with certain activities due to the presence of exostoses
- Deformities or abnormalities in the shape of the affected bones
- Short stature or growth delays
- Hearing loss (in some cases)
- Recurrent fractures or breaks in the bones due to the presence of exostoses
- Difficulty with breathing or swallowing due to involvement of the ribcage or throat
