Summaries for Knobloch Syndrome

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:48 Knobloch syndrome is characterized by severe vision problems and skull defects. The most common features include extreme nearsightedness (high myopia), recurrent retinal detachment, and occipital encephalocele. There are three types of Knobloch syndrome, which can be distinguished by the underlying genetic cause. Knobloch syndrome type I is caused by mutations in the COL18A1 gene. The genes associated with Knobloch syndrome type 2 and type 3 have not been identified; however, Knobloch syndrome type 3 has been linked to a specific region on chromosome 17, known as 17q11.2. Knobloch syndrome follows an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. Treatment is aimed at addressing the symptoms present in each individual and may include surgery to repair retinal detachments and occiptal encephaloceles. Last updated: 10/18/2016

MalaCards based summary: Knobloch Syndrome, also known as retinal detachment and occipital encephalocele, is related to knobloch syndrome, type 1 and passos-bueno syndrome, and has symptoms including seizures and unspecified visual loss. An important gene associated with Knobloch Syndrome is COL18A1 (Collagen Type XVIII Alpha 1 Chain), and among its related pathways is Degradation of the extracellular matrix. Affiliated tissues include eye, retina and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are skeleton and vision/eye.

Genetics Home Reference:25 Knobloch syndrome is a rare condition characterized by severe vision problems and a skull defect.
