NINDS:43 Klippel-Feil Syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by the congenital fusion of any 2 of the 7 cervical (neck) vertebrae. It is caused by a failure in the normal segmentation or division of the cervical vertebrae during the early weeks of fetal development. The most common signs of the disorder are short neck, low hairline at the back of the head, and restricted mobility of the upper spine. Associated abnormalities may include (curvature of the spine), (a birth defect of the spine), anomalies of the kidneys and the ribs, cleft palate, respiratory problems, and heart malformations. The disorder also may be associated with abnormalities of the head and face, skeleton, sex organs, muscles, brain and spinal cord, arms, legs, and fingers.

MalaCards based summary: Klippel-Feil Syndrome, also known as klippel feil syndrome, is related to cervicitis and situs inversus. An important gene associated with Klippel-Feil Syndrome is GDF6 (growth differentiation factor 6), and among its related pathways is TGF-beta Signaling Pathway. Affiliated tissues include cervical vertebra, bone and heart, and related mouse phenotypes are limbs/digits/tail and craniofacial.

Disease Ontology:8 A physical disorder that has material basis in abnormal segmentation of the vertebra during fetal development which results in fusion located in cervical vertebra.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Klippel-Feil syndrome is a bone disorder characterized by the abnormal joining (fusion) of two or more spinal bones in the neck (cervical vertebrae), which is present from birth. Three major features result from this abnormality: a short neck, a limited range of motion in the neck, and a low hairline at the back of the head. Most affected people have one or two of these characteristic features. Less than half of all individuals with Klippel-Feil syndrome have all three classic features of this condition.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Klippel feil syndrome is a musculoskeletal disorder that is present from birth. it is characterized by the fusion of at least two vertebrae of the neck. most cases are sporadic but in some cases, it can be inherited in an autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive fashion. common symptoms of klippel feil syndrome include short neck, low hairline at the back of the head, and restricted mobility of the upper spine. last updated: 7/26/2013
