Rapadilino syndrome is an autosomal recessive  congenital disorder characterized by radial and patellar aplasia, short stature, arched or cleft palate, limb malformation, and dislocated joints. It is more prevalent in  Finland than elsewhere in the world.
It has been associated with
RECQL4. This is also associated with  Rothmund-Thomson syndrome and Baller-Gerold syndrome.  
Rapadilino syndrome has an autosomal recessive pattern of
