Multicentric osteolysis nodulosis and arthropathy (MONA) is an infrequently described autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia characterized by progressive osteolysis and arthropathy. Inactivating mutations in MMP2, encoding matrix metalloproteinase-2, are known to cause this disorder. Fifteen families with mutations in MMP2 have been reported in literature. In this study we screened thirteen individuals from eleven families forMMP2mutations and identified eight mutations (five novel and three known variants).We characterize the clinical, radiographic and molecular findings in all individuals with molecularly provenMONAfrom the present cohort and previous reports, and provide a comprehensive review of the MMP2 related disorders.
