About Saul Wilson Syndrome

What is known about Saul Wilson Syndrome?

The medical diagnosis is called Microcephalic osteodysplastic dysplasia, Saul-Wilson type.  Saul Wilson is a rare skeletal disorder.

Right now there is not alot of information out there on this type of dwarfism and I am helping write this syndrome.  Everything medical I go through is documented for this dwarfism.

To my knowledge there are only 2 confirmed cases at this time that are still living.  Both females (me and Michelle).  We believe there to be anywhere from 4 to 7 males diagnosed with this type but we have yet to meet any and have not been told any more about them since we were very young.

Symptoms of Saul Wilson Syndrome include:

  • Small head
  • Prominent forehead
  • Prominent eyes
  • Flat cheek bones
  • Narrow nose root
  • Beaked nose
  • Cataract
  • Cone-shaped epiphyses
  • Short digits
  • Small hand
  • Clubfoot
  • Short stature
  • Underdeveloped odontoid process
  • Vertebral abnormalities

My goal in making this website is to learn more about my dwarfism and to make public any knowledge that I gain.  Aside from a few medical journals written this is the first time ever that anyone has gathered information on this syndrome. 

I can’t wait to share what I learn with all of you!

    My son was the first diagnosed with Saul-Wilson Syndrome. The syndrome is named after Dr. Saul and Dr. Wilson while they were both at the University of Virginia Medical School. Dr. Wilson is still there and Dr. Saul, the last I heard, was at Tulane.

    Bryan is 38 years old, still going as best as he can, doesn’t talk but he does vocalize.

    Both of my boys were diagnosed with Saul-Wilson today. They are 8 years old and 4 years old. It took a very long time for the diagnosis.
