Mode of inheritance
BIALLELIC, autosomal or pseudoautosomal
Werner syndrome -277700
Comment on list classification: Keeping red for now. Associated with Werner syndrome with Osteoporosis and slender limbs listed as clinical features in OMIM. Short stature. But need confirmation that this is considered strong enough a skeletal dysplasia phenotype before promoting to green.

Associated with Werner syndrome #277700 (AR) in OMIM with Osteoporosis and slender limbs listed as clinical features.
From Genetics Home Reference "Werner syndrome is characterized by the dramatic, rapid appearance of features associated with normal aging. Individuals with this disorder typically grow and develop normally until they reach puberty. Affected teenagers usually do not have a growth spurt, resulting in short stature".
Numerous variants reported in the RECQL2/WRN gene in association with Werner syndrome in OMIM.
