NIH Rare Diseases:47 Arterial tortuosity syndrome is a disorder that affects connective tissue (a tissue that provides strength and flexibility to structures throughout the body). It is characterized by blood vessel abnormalities, particularly abnormal twists and turns (tortuosity) of the blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body (the arteries). Other blood vessel abnormalities that may occur in this disorder include constriction (stenosis) and abnormal bulging (aneurysm) of vessels, as well as small clusters of enlarged blood vessels just under the skin (telangiectasia). Other features include joints that are either loose and very flexible (hypermobile) or that have deformities limiting movement (contractures), soft and stretchable skin, long, slender fingers and toes (arachnodactyly); curvature of the spine (scoliosis); or a chest that is either sunken (pectus excavatum) or protruding (pectus carinatum), protrusion of organs through gaps in muscles (hernias), elongation of the intestines, or pouches called diverticula in the intestinal walls. People with arterial tortuosity syndrome often look older than their age and have distinctive facial features. The cornea, which is the clear front covering of the eye, may be cone-shaped and abnormally thin (keratoconus). Arterial tortuosity syndrome is caused by alterations (mutations) in the SLC2A10 gene. Aneurysms and focal stenoses are corrected with surgery. Many specialists may be needed for the best managment of the condition. Last updated: 7/4/2015
MalaCards based summary: Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome, also known as ats, is related to retinal arteries, tortuosity of and cytomegalovirus disease in patients with impaired cell mediated immunity deemed at risk, and has symptoms including congestive heart failure, aneurysm and dilatation of the ascending aorta. An important gene associated with Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome is SLC2A10 (Solute Carrier Family 2 Member 10), and among its related pathways are Elastic fibre formation and Protein digestion and absorption. Affiliated tissues include skin, heart and eye, and related mouse phenotypes are cardiovascular system and integument.
Disease Ontology:11 A connective tissue disease that is characterized by elongation and generalized tortuosity of the major arteries including the aorta.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Arterial tortuosity syndrome: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by tortuosity and elongation of major arteries, often resulting in death at young age. Other typical features include aneurysms of large arteries and stenosis of the pulmonary artery, in association with facial features and several connective tissue manifestations such as soft skin and joint laxity. Histopathological findings include fragmentation of elastic fibers in the tunica media of large arteries.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Arterial tortuosity syndrome is a disorder that affects connective tissue. Connective tissue provides strength and flexibility to structures throughout the body, including blood vessels, skin, joints, and the gastrointestinal tract.
