NIH Rare Diseases:43 Borjeson-forssman-lehmann syndrome (bfls) is a genetic condition characterized by intellectual disability, obesity, seizures, hypogonadism, developmental delay and distinctive facial features. these symptoms are variable, even among members of the same family. bfls is caused by mutations in the phf6 gene on the x chromosome. this mutation is usually transmitted as an x-linked recessive trait, which means the disorder is fully expressed predominantly in males. last updated: 10/20/2011

MalaCards: Borjeson-Forssman-Lehmann Syndrome, also known as borjeson syndrome, is related to hypogonadism and mental retardation, and has symptoms including blepharophimosis/short palpebral fissures, deepset eyes/enophthalmos and cleft lip and palate. An important gene associated with Borjeson-Forssman-Lehmann Syndrome is PHF6 (PHD finger protein 6), and among its related pathways are Agrin Interactions at Neuromuscular Junction and Adhesion. The compounds gnrh and acth have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, eye and breast, and related mouse phenotypes are craniofacial and endocrine/exocrine gland.

Disease Ontology:8 An x-linked disease that is characterized by intellectual disability, truncal obesity, seizures, hypogonadism, developmental delay, distinctive facial features, tapered fingers and short toes and has material basis in x-linked recessive inheritance of mutations in the phf6 gene.
