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/.

Definition:The abnormal fusion of neighboring bones across a joint.
Comment:Note that contracture refers to a reduction of joint mobility due to permanent shortening of the soft parts around a joint, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fasciae, or skin. Ankylosis and contracture can occur together or alone. Fibrous ankylosis refers to adhesions between the opposing surface of a joint. Cartilaginous ankylosis implies the fusion of two apposed cartilaginous surfaces. Bony ankylosis or synostosis refers to an osseous union between articulating surfaces.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Bony ankylosis;   Fusion of joints
 xref: UMLS:C4022183
