Summaries for Fechtner Syndrome

About this section
OMIM:50 Fechtner syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the triad of thrombocytopenia, giant platelets,... (153640) more...

MalaCards based summary: Fechtner Syndrome, also known as macrothrombocytopathy, nephritis, deafness, and leukocyte inclusions, is related to myh9 related thrombocytopenia and may-hegglin anomaly, and has symptoms including high-frequency sensorineural hearing impairment, proteinuria and nephritis. An important gene associated with Fechtner Syndrome is MYH9 (Myosin Heavy Chain 9), and among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Actin Nucleation by ARP-WASP Complex. Affiliated tissues include eye, kidney and neutrophil.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Fechtner syndrome: Autosomal dominant macrothrombocytopenia characterized by thrombocytopenia, giant platelets and leukocyte inclusions that are small and poorly organized. Additionally, FTNS is distinguished by Alport-like clinical features of sensorineural deafness, cataracts and nephritis.

Wikipedia:69 Fechtner syndrome is a variant of Alport syndrome with leukocyte inclusions and macrothrombocytopenia. more...
