NIH Rare Diseases:45 Beckwith-wiedemann syndrome (bws) is a growth disorder that can affect several parts of the body. affected infants are larger than normal and are taller than their peers during childhood. growth slows down in several years, and affected adults are not unusually tall. some children have asymmetric growth which usually becomes less apparent over time. other signs and symptoms may include an omphalocele or other abdominal wall defect at birth; low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) in infancy; an abnormally large tongue (macroglossia); abnormally large abdominal organs; creases or pits in the skin near the ears; and kidney abnormalities. affected children have an increased risk to develop tumors, particularly wilms tumor and hepatoblastoma. bws may be caused by several types of genetic changes, but in about 85% of cases only one person in a family is diagnosed with the disorder. last updated: 8/24/2015
MalaCards based summary: Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome, also known as wiedemann-beckwith syndrome, is related to beckwith-wiedemann syndrome due to cdkn1c mutation and silver-russell syndrome, and has symptoms including tall stature, cryptorchidism and nephropathy. An important gene associated with Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome is CDKN1C (Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 1C (P57, Kip2)). Affiliated tissues include kidney, tongue and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are embryogenesis and cellular.
Disease Ontology:10 A syndrome characterized by overgrowth (macrosomia), an increased risk of childhood cancer and congenital malformations.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is a condition that affects many parts of the body. It is classified as an overgrowth syndrome, which means that affected infants are considerably larger than normal (macrosomia) and tend to be taller than their peers during childhood. Growth begins to slow by about age 8, and adults with this condition are not unusually tall. In some children with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, specific parts of the body on one side or the other may grow abnormally large, leading to an asymmetric or uneven appearance. This unusual growth pattern, which is known as hemihyperplasia, usually becomes less apparent over time.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome: A disorder characterized by anterior abdominal wall defects including exomphalos (omphalocele), pre- and postnatal overgrowth, and macroglossia. Additional less frequent complications include specific developmental defects and a predisposition to embryonal tumors.
