Summaries for Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 49 The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.Orpha Number: 2095Disease definitionGorlin-Chaudhry-Moss (GCM) syndrome is a multiple congenital anomaly syndrome characterized by craniofacial dysostosis, facial dysmorphism, conductive hearing loss, generalized hypertrichosis, and extremity, ocular and dental anomalies.EpidemiologyTo date, 7 cases of GCM have been described in the world literature and all patients are female with no known parental consanguinity.Clinical descriptionGCM is a congenital disorder in which patients present with a stocky body build, normal intelligence, coronal craniosynostosis, facial dysmorphism (brachy/turricephaly, low anterior and posterior hairline, coarse hair, synophrys, depressed supraorbital ridges, short and downslanted or upslanted palpebral fissures, ectropion of lower eyelid, underdeveloped ala nasi, prominent columella, midface hypoplasia, and underdeveloped small ears with increased posterior angulation), conductive hearing loss, ocular (coloboma of the eyelid (see this term), hyperopia, microphthalmia) and oro-dental (microdontia, irregularly shaped widely spaced teeth, oligodontia (see this term), narrow, and high arched narrow palate with medial cleft) anomalies and generalized hypertrichosis. Anomalies of the extremities (hypoplastic distal phalanges, small/aplastic nails, cutaneous syndactyly, absent flexion crease of the thumbs, single transverse palmar creases), umbilical hernia, and hypoplasia of labia majora are also observed. Other additional features that may be observed include congenital laryngomalacia and heart disease (patent arterial duct) (see these terms). Progeroid syndrome, Petty type and Saethre-Chotzen syndrome (see these terms) have overlapping features with GCM syndrome and should be considered in the differential diagnosis.EtiologyThe etiology is still unknown and, to date, no causative gene has been implicated in the physiopathology of GCM.Genetic counselingGCM is considered to be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. However, the lack of consanguinity combined with the fact that all affected patients are female could suggest a de novo X-linked dominant disorder with male lethality.Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

MalaCards based summary : Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss Syndrome, also known as gorlin chaudhry moss syndrome, is related to giant cell myocarditis and dysostosis, and has symptoms including hypertelorism, nystagmus and umbilical hernia. An important gene associated with Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss Syndrome is SLC25A24 (Solute Carrier Family 25 Member 24). Affiliated tissues include eye, heart and bone.

OMIM : 53 The cardinal features of Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss syndrome (GCMS) include stocky body build, hypertrichosis, craniosynostosis, conductive hearing loss, normal intelligence, hyperopia, facial dysmorphism, dental anomalies, hypoplastic distal phalanges, umbilical hernia, and genital hypoplasia. The facial dysmorphism consists of brachycephaly, low anterior hairline, coarse hair, midface hypoplasia, short palpebral fissures, microphthalmia, high-arched narrow palate, and posteriorly angulated ears (Rosti et al., 2013). (233500)

Genetics Home Reference : 24 Gorlin-Chaudhry-Moss syndrome is a condition that affects many parts of the body. The signs and symptoms of this disorder are apparent from birth or infancy.
