Gordon Syndrome

Posted on August 28, 2014

Gordon syndrome is a rare, inherited genetic disorder where affected joints remain permanently curved or flexed, restricting normal movement. Gordon syndrome is a distal arthrogryposis, a classification of disorders that involves stiffness and impeded mobility of lower extremity joints in the distal extremities, or knees, ankles, elbows, and wrists. Gordon syndrome can cause the foot to atypically bend inward. The degree of the disorder, joint deformity, and related symptoms varies from individual to individual.
