Abstract

The two well-described osteolysis syndromes associated with matrix metalloproteinase-2 deficiency and mutations in the metalloproteinase-2 gene are Torg-Winchester syndrome and nodulosis-arthropathy-osteolysis variant. They are characterized by carpal-tarsal destruction, subcutaneous nodules, and generalized osteoporosis and show autosomal recessive inheritance. Herein, we report two siblings affected with a novel mutation in matrix metalloproteinase 2 gene and discuss their clinical and radiographic findings.
