Summaries for Acromegaloid Facial Appearance Syndrome

About this section
MalaCards based summary: Acromegaloid Facial Appearance Syndrome, also known as thick lips and oral mucosa, is related to acromegaloid hypertrichosis syndrome and antiphospholipid syndrome, and has symptoms including abnormality of the tongue, thick lower lip vermilion and gingival overgrowth. An important gene associated with Acromegaloid Facial Appearance Syndrome is ABCC9 (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family C (CFTR/MRP), Member 9). Affiliated tissues include tongue, skin and bone, and related mouse phenotype muscle.
