Summaries for Lymphedema-Distichiasis Syndrome

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome is a condition that affects the normal function of the lymphatic system, which is a part of the circulatory and immune systems. The lymphatic system produces and transports fluids and immune cells throughout the body. People with lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome develop puffiness or swelling (lymphedema) of the limbs, typically the legs and feet. Another characteristic of this syndrome is the growth of extra eyelashes (distichiasis), ranging from a few extra eyelashes to a full extra set on both the upper and lower lids. These eyelashes do not grow along the edge of the eyelid, but out of its inner lining. When the abnormal eyelashes touch the eyeball, they can cause damage to the clear covering of the eye (cornea). Related eye problems can include an irregular curvature of the cornea causing blurred vision (astigmatism) or scarring of the cornea. Other health problems associated with this disorder include swollen and knotted (varicose) veins, droopy eyelids (ptosis), heart abnormalities, and an opening in the roof of the mouth (a cleft palate).

MalaCards based summary : Lymphedema-Distichiasis Syndrome, also known as lymphedema with distichiasis, is related to distichiasis and lymphedema, and has symptoms including recurrent urinary tract infections, ptosis and proteinuria. An important gene associated with Lymphedema-Distichiasis Syndrome is FOXC2 (Forkhead Box C2). Affiliated tissues include eye, heart and skin, and related phenotype is Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2).

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 lymphedema distichiasis syndrome is a condition that affects the normal function of the lymphatic system (part of the immune system that produces and transports fluids and immune cells throughout the body). people with this condition are born with extra eyelashes (distichiasis) and develop puffiness or swelling (lymphedema) of the limbs by the time they are in their forties. the abnormal eyelashes, which grow along the inner lining of the eyelid, often touch the eyeball and can cause damage to the clear covering of the eye (cornea). other eye problems such as an irregular curvature of the cornea causing blurred vision (astigmatism) or scarring of the cornea may also occur. other health problems, varicose veins, droopy eyelids (ptosis), heart abnormalities, and an opening in the roof of the mouth (a cleft palate), may also be present. lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome is caused by mutations in the foxc2 gene. this condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. last updated: 4/1/2011

OMIM : 54
Lymphedema-distichiasis is an autosomal dominant disorder that classically presents as lymphedema of the limbs and double rows of eyelashes (distichiasis). Irritation of the cornea, with corneal ulceration in some cases, brings the patients to the attention of ophthalmologists. Other complications may include cardiac defects, varicose veins, ptosis, cleft palate, spinal extradural cysts, and photophobia (Fang et al., 2000; Brice et al., 2002). (153400)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Lymphedema-distichiasis: A disorder characterized by primary limb lymphedema associated with distichiasis (double rows of eyelashes, with extra eyelashes growing from the Meibomian gland orifices). Swelling of the extremities, due to altered lymphatic flow, usually appears in late childhood or puberty. Most affected individuals have ocular findings including corneal irritation, recurrent conjunctivitis, and photophobia. Drooping of the upper eyelid (ptosis) is a variable feature of the lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome, occurring in about 30% of patients.
