MalaCards based summary: Caudal Regression Syndrome, also known as sacral defect with anterior meningocele, is related to myelocystocele and sacral agenesis with vertebral anomalies, and has symptoms including ambiguous genitalia, single umbilical artery and bowel incontinence. An important gene associated with Caudal Regression Syndrome is VANGL1 (VANGL Planar Cell Polarity Protein 1), and among its related pathways are Adipogenesis and Signaling by Retinoic Acid. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, kidney and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and limbs/digits/tail.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Sacral defect with anterior meningocele: Form of caudal dysgenesis. It is present at birth and becomes symptomatic later in life, usually because of obstructive labor in females, chronic constipation, or meningitis. Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Caudal regression syndrome is a disorder that impairs the development of the lower (caudal) half of the body. Affected areas can include the lower back and limbs, the genitourinary tract, and the gastrointestinal tract.
NIH Rare Diseases:47 Caudal regression syndrome is a disorder that impairs the development of the lower (caudal) half of the body. It may affect the lower back (including the spinal cord), limbs, genitourinary tract, and the gastrointestinal tract. The specific features and severity of the disorder vary among affected people. Caudal regression syndrome may have different causes in different people, and is likely caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for the disorder. Most cases are sporadic or are associated with maternal diabetes. Management is supportive and may include surgery. The prognosis is poor; some newborns with severe cases do not survive the neonatal period. Those that survive infancy usually have normal cognitive function. Last updated: 9/9/2015
