NIH Rare Diseases:42 Denys-drash syndrome is a condition that affects the kidneys and genitalia. kidney disease typically begins in the first few months of life, often leading to kidney failure in childhood. in addition, up to 90 percent of people with this condition develop a rare form of kidney cancer known as wilms tumor. males with denys-drash syndrome have gonadal dysgenesis, a condition in which the external genitalia do not look clearly male or clearly female (ambiguous genitalia) or the genitalia appear to be completely female. the testes are also undescended, meaning that they remain in the pelvis, abdomen, or groin. affected females usually have normal genitalia. for this reason, females with this condition may be diagnosed with isolated nephrotic syndrome. denys-drash syndrome is caused by mutations in the wt1 gene. this condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, which means one copy of the altered gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the disorder. however, most cases result from new mutations in the gene and occur in people with no history of the disorder in their family. last updated: 10/28/2013

MalaCards: Denys-Drash Syndrome, also known as drash syndrome, is related to gonadal dysgenesis and pseudohermaphroditism, and has symptoms including chronic arterial hypertension, renal disease/nephropathy and proteinuria. An important gene associated with Denys-Drash Syndrome is WT1 (Wilms tumor 1), and among its related pathways are Cell-cell junction organization and Nephrin/Neph1 signaling in the kidney podocyte. The compounds dmrt and puromycin aminonucleoside have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and cardiovascular system.

Disease Ontology:8 An autosomal dominant disease that is characterized by the association of diffuse mesangial sclerosis (dms), male pseudohermaphroditism with a 46,xy karyotype, and nephroblastoma that derives from an abnormality in the wt1 gene (wilms' tumor suppressor gene).

Genetics Home Reference:21 Denys-Drash syndrome is a condition that affects the kidneys and genitalia.
