The camptodactyly-arthropathy-coxa vara-pericarditis syndrome (CACP) is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by the association of congenital or early onset camptodactyly and noninflammatory arthropathy with synovial hyperplasia. Progressive coxa vara deformity and/or noninflammatory pericardial or pleural effusions have been observed in some patients. Recently, the disease gene has been assigned to human chromosome region 1q25-q31, and truncating mutations have been identified in the megakaryocyte stimulating factor gene. Studying 12 patients from 8 unrelated families, we emphasized hip and spine involvement, particularly in the course of the disease as shown in a 58-year-old patient. Despite clinical variability, linkage studies support genetic homogeneity of the disease.
