Since then, other forms of the condition have been discovered although they are much rarer. These conditions are known as translocation and mosaicism. Translocation occurs when a parent passes on an abnormal chromosome instead of an extra one. Mosaicism is where some cells in the body have the normal 46 chromosomes while others will have 47.

The high arched foot is generally a rigid, stable, immobile structure that is unable to perform the most basic function of the running foot – adequate shock absorption through controlled, appropriate pronation. Pronation is described as a slight raising of the lateral border of the foot combined with a slight lateral bending of the front of the foot. In long distance running, in which adequate shock absorption is essential, the chances of injury with a rigid foot and running shoes with little cushioning are great.
