About Melnick-Needles Syndrome.

 (Also Known as Osteodysplasia or Osteodysplasty.)


Melnick-Needles Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder of the bones, but also affects the soft body tissue such as the kidneys and the renal tract.

The condition was founded in 1966 by Dr’s Melnick and Needles and to date there are very few cases known worldwide.

Because of this, very little is known of its origin, but it is known to be a chromosome.
