Summaries for Congenital Cataracts, Facial Dysmorphism, and Neuropathy

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Congenital cataracts, facial dysmorphism, and neuropathy: An autosomal recessive developmental disorder characterized by a complex clinical phenotype with seemingly unrelated features involving multiple organs and systems. Developmental abnormalities include congenital cataracts and microcorneae, hypomyelination of the peripheral nervous system, impaired physical growth, delayed early motor and intellectual development, facial dysmorphism and hypogonadism. Central nervous system involvement, with cerebral and spinal cord atrophy, may be the result of disrupted development with superimposed degenerative changes. Affected individuals are prone to severe rhabdomyolysis after viral infections and to serious complications related to general anesthesia (such as pulmonary edema and epileptic seizures).

MalaCards based summary : Congenital Cataracts, Facial Dysmorphism, and Neuropathy, also known as ccfdn, is related to marinesco-sjogren syndrome and cataract, and has symptoms including ataxia, abnormal pyramidal signs and nystagmus. An important gene associated with Congenital Cataracts, Facial Dysmorphism, and Neuropathy is CTDP1 (CTD Phosphatase Subunit 1). Affiliated tissues include eye, spinal cord and testes.

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Congenital cataracts, facial dysmorphism, and neuropathy (CCFDN) is a rare disorder that affects several parts of the body. It is characterized by a clouding of the lens of the eyes at birth (congenital cataracts) and other eye abnormalities, such as small or poorly developed eyes (microphthalmia) and abnormal eye movements (nystagmus). Affected individuals, particularly males, often have distinctive facial features that become more apparent as they reach adulthood. These features include a prominent midface, a large nose, protruding teeth, and a small lower jaw.

OMIM : 53 Congenital cataracts, facial dysmorphism, and neuropathy is an autosomal recessive disorder that is prevalent among Bulgarian Gypsies. Additional features include delayed psychomotor development, skeletal anomalies, and hypogonadism. The predominantly motor neuropathy becomes evident during childhood and progresses to severe disability by the third decade (Tournev et al., 1999). CCFDN is genetically distinct from Marinesco-Sjogren syndrome (MSS; 248800), although the 2 disorders share some overlapping features, including congenital cataracts, delayed psychomotor development, and ataxia (Merlini et al., 2002).
