Rapadilino syndrome is an autosomal recessive[1] congenital disorder characterized by radial and patellar aplasia, short stature, arched or cleft palate, limb malformation, and dislocated joints.[1] It is more prevalent in Finland than elsewhere in the world.

It has been associated with RECQL4.[2] This is also associated with Rothmund-Thomson syndrome[3] and Baller-Gerold syndrome.[4]

Rapadilino syndrome has an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance.
