Summaries for Intestinal Pseudoobstruction, Neuronal

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a condition characterized by impairment of the muscle contractions that move food through the digestive tract. the condition may arise from abnormalities of the gastrointestinal muscles themselves (myogenic) or from problems with the nerves that control the muscle contractions (neurogenic). when intestinal pseudo-obstruction occurs by itself, it is called primary or idiopathic (unknown cause) intestinal pseudo-obstruction. the disorder can also develop as a complication of another medical condition; in these cases, it is called secondary intestinal pseudo-obstruction. individuals with this condition have symptoms that resemble those of an intestinal blockage (obstruction) but without any obstruction. it may be acute or chronic and is characterized by the presence of dilation of the bowel on imaging. the causes may be unknown or due to alterations (mutations) in the flna gene, other genes or are secondary to other conditions. it may be inherited in some cases. intestinal pseudoobstruction neuronal chronic idiopathic x-linked is caused by alterations (mutations) in the flna gene which is located in the x chromosome. there is no specific treatment but several medications and procedures may be used to treat the symptoms. last updated: 7/17/2015

MalaCards based summary : Intestinal Pseudoobstruction, Neuronal, also known as congenital idiopathic intestinal pseudoobstruction, is related to congenital short bowel syndrome and hydrocephalus due to aqueductal stenosis, and has symptoms including seizures, low-set ears and thrombocytopenia. An important gene associated with Intestinal Pseudoobstruction, Neuronal is FLNA (Filamin A). Affiliated tissues include small intestine.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Congenital short bowel syndrome, X-linked: A disease characterized by a shortened small intestine, and malabsorption. The mean length of the small intestine in affected individuals is approximately 50 cm, compared with a normal length at birth of 190-280 cm. It is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Infants usually present with failure to thrive, recurrent vomiting, and diarrhea. Intestinal pseudoobstruction, neuronal, chronic idiopathic, X-linked: A disease characterized by a severe abnormality of gastrointestinal motility due to primary qualitative defects of enteric ganglia and nerve fibers. Affected individuals manifest recurrent signs of intestinal obstruction in the absence of any mechanical lesion.

OMIM : 54
Chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudoobstruction (CIIP) is caused by severe abnormality of gastrointestinal motility. Patients have recurrent symptoms and signs of intestinal obstruction without any mechanical lesion (Auricchio et al., 1996). Some primary forms of CIIP are caused by defects of enteric neuronal cells: see Hirschsprung disease (see, e.g., HSCR1; 142623) and autosomal recessive visceral neuropathy (243180) (Tanner et al., 1976).
