Summaries for Cleft Palate, Isolated

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Cleft palate isolated: A congenital fissure of the soft and/or hard palate, due to faulty fusion. Isolated cleft palate is not associated with cleft lips. Some patients may manifest other craniofacial dysmorphic features, mental retardation, and osteoporosis.

MalaCards based summary : Cleft Palate, Isolated, also known as cleft palate, is related to cleft palate with ankyloglossia and cleft lip +/- cleft palate, and has symptoms including seizures, micrognathia and cleft palate. An important gene associated with Cleft Palate, Isolated is FLNA (Filamin A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers and Neural Crest Differentiation. The drugs Codeine and Guaifenesin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, and related phenotypes are craniofacial and growth/size/body region

Disease Ontology : 12 An orofacial cleft characterized by a fissure of the soft and/or hard palate, due to faulty fusion of the two plates of the skull that form the hard palate.

OMIM : 54
Cleft palate as an isolated malformation behaves as an entity distinct from cleft lip with or without cleft palate (see 119530). Dominantly inherited cleft soft palate in 4 generations has been reported (Jenkins and Stady, 1980); see 119570. (119540)
