    In osteopetrosis, the body does not recycle old bone cells. The result is increased density or thickness of the bones and an alteration in how the bones are shaped. These changes make bones weaker than normal. The dense bone tissue also crowds out the bone marrow, which is where blood cells are formed. The effects of genetic skeletal disorders on bones and joints can vary greatly. There are hundreds of different types of genetic skeletal disorders, affecting different bones and joints in different ways. Some disorders are more severe than others. Examples include: All forms of dwarfism not related to hormonal causes; Limb deficiencies or defects.

    membranes of multiple joints, eventually resulting in crippling deformities. As RA develops, there is congestion and edema of the synovial membrane and joint, causing formation of a thick layer of granulation tissue. This tissue invades cartilage, destroying the joint and bone. Eventually, a fibrous immobility of joints (ankylosis) occurs. Genetic constitution is a factor in the development of most diseases, including those of bones and joints. Evidence for the influence of genes in disease development is expressed in 2 ways. First, some diseases occur in families at higher rates than in the general by:

    – Enlarged bones that are evident on radiological scans (also associated with bone pains). – Broken bones due to porous and weak architecture of inner bone matrix. – Damaged cartilage in joints that leads to arthritis and high risk of fractures and dislocation of joints. Risk factors – It is far more common in males as compared to females. SPINA BILFIDA- is a genetic birth defect that effects the development of the spinal cord while a baby is in the uterus. Skeltal system-is the bodily system that consists of the bones, their associated cartilages, and the joints. It supports and protects the body, produces blood.
