  1. *Definitions from the MP Ontology. Hydrocephaly, excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, especially the cerebral ventricles, often leading to increased brain size and other brain trauma. Dystrophic cardiac calcinosis, a condition characterized by the localized deposition of calcium salts in the heart; often occurring in association with inflammation or atherosclerotic lesions and other pathological states. §Lenticonus, a conical bulging of the lens capsule and the underlying cortex of the eye. Osteopetrosis, excessive formation of dense trabecular bone and excessive calcified cartilage formation; may lead to anemia and extramedullary hematopoiesis.
