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 a lot 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.

Recently there have been 17 confirmed cases of Saul Wilson Syndrome.

Characteristics 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.

    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.

  3. Hi there…

    A little 10 years old boy named Piet from Denmark got this disease to.

    He’s such a pretty lovely little boy.

    Tv2 Denmark has followed him and his family and send his story on tv soon…

    The doctors I Denmark didn’t know the diagnosis for a long time, but today they know it’s the Saul-Wilson syndrome…

    Looking forward to following Piet and his family.

    Wishing you all a wonderful life

    Hugs from Dorte

        Thank you for your sharing.
        Being aware by now that Saul Wilson dis-ease is a kind of dwarfisme, which in its nature must make for a different life in many regards, I’d like to know if those about 14 beings with other human-species combinations than the species in general have, may have special areas in life where they excel in their different-ness like being extraordinarily kind, brilliant in some area or other, a particular combination-skill, other attitudes or other psychological insights?

        • littleperson123 says:

          Doctors have noted that several of us seem to have very positive and bubbly attitudes. No matter what I have gone through my positive attitude has helped me through everything. Everyone I meet tells me I have a very positive attitude and that I’m always laughing and smiling.

        • littleperson123 says:

          Also I want to say that since I was diagnosed at age 5 with Saul Wilson Syndrome I have known it was a type of dwarfism, however doctors didn’t have the gene or know anything about it until just recently. We are at the beginning of finding out what we need to know about Saul Wilson Syndrome.
