Jeune syndrome or suffocating thoracic dysplasia is a genetic disease with autosomal recessive inheritance, characterized by presenting a quirky phenotype. The diagnosis is clinical-radiological. Mutations in genes IFT80, DYNC2H1, WDR19, IFT140 and TTC21B that encode intraflagellar transport proteins responsible for the disease have been described.
