Cleidocranial Dysplasia is a serious medical disorder which is congenital in nature, i.e. it gets transferred from the parents to the offspring. The medical condition is identified when a person generally has a missing or premature collar bone. The common ill effects of this condition are a very poor bone and teeth health in the longer run. Critical symptoms of this condition are as follows: premature closing of the soft spot on the head (coronal), delayed closure of the space between the bones of the skull (fontanels), narrow and abnormally shaped pelvic and pubic bones and bone deformations in the chest.

Individuals having Cleidocranial Dysplasia may be 3 to 6 inches shorter than the average height of other family members, and may have short fingers and broad thumbs.
