General Conversation
Beals syndrome is an incredibly rare congenital disease defined by the permanent fixation of certain joints (e.g., fingers, elbow joints, knees, and hips) in a flexed position (contractures); unusually long, slender fingers as well as toes (arachnodactyly); completely flexed fingers (camptodactyly); and/or uncommonly shaped ears resulting in a “messed up” look. Furthermore, impacted people could show front-to-back and side-to-side curvature of the spinal column (kyphoscoliosis); feet that are abnormally placed (talipes equinovarus or clubfoot); external displacement of the fingers (ulnar deviation of the fingers); an unusually brief neck; and/or. Seldom, impacted people could have a small deformity of the shutoff on the left side of the heart (mitral shutoff prolapse). Beals disorder is inherited as an autosomal leading attribute.
