NIH Rare Diseases:46 Laurence-moon syndrome is a rare condition that affects many different parts of the body. signs and symptoms vary but may include cerebellar ataxia; eye abnormalities (primarily affecting the choroid and retina); peripheral neuropathy; spastic paraplegia (progressive weakness and stiffness of the legs); intellectual disability; congenital (from birth) or childhood hypopituitarism; and short stature. laurence-moon syndrome is caused by changes (mutations) in the pnpla6 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. treatment is based on the signs and symptoms present in each person. until recently, laurence-moon syndrome has been associated with bardet-biedl syndrome but newer research determined that they are separate conditions. last updated: 6/18/2015
MalaCards based summary: Laurence-Moon Syndrome, also known as laurence-moon-biedl syndrome, is related to bardet-biedl syndrome and oliver-mcfarlane syndrome, and has symptoms including hand polydactyly, obesity and finger syndactyly. An important gene associated with Laurence-Moon Syndrome is PNPLA6 (Patatin Like Phospholipase Domain Containing 6). Affiliated tissues include eye, pituitary and retina, and related mouse phenotypes are cardiovascular system and nervous system.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Laurence-Moon syndrome: An autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by progressive spinocerebellar degeneration, spastic paraplegia, mental retardation, hypogonadism, dwarfism, and chorioretinopathy. Trichomegaly is absent.
