HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Accession:HP:0010891 term browser browse the term
Definition:A developmental growth retardation of the vertebral end plates that may lead to secondary destruction of the vertebral end plates and protrusion of the nucleus pulposus into the vertebral body (so called Schmorl's nodes as seen on x-rays).
Comment:Scheuermann's disease usually manifests during the 2nd decade and leads to the appearance of the so called adolescence kyphosis. Late manifestations may be wedge-shaped vertebrae, platyspondyly and arthrosis affecting the verterbal collum.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Calve disease;   Juvenile Osteochondrosis of the spine;   Scheuermann disease;   Scheuermann kyphosis;   Sherman's Disease
