NIH Rare Diseases:44 Meckel syndrome is a very severe disorder that is characterized by multiple cysts on the kidneys, protrusion of a portion of the brain through an opening in the skull (occipital encephalocele), and extra fingers or toes (polydactyly). affected children may also have abnormalities affecting the head and face, liver, lungs, genitals, and urinary tract. because of these serious health problems, most infants with meckel syndrome do not survive for long after birth. meckel syndrome is caused by mutations in one of eight genes, and it is inherited in an autosomal-recessive manner.  last updated: 5/30/2012

MalaCards: Meckel Syndrome, also known as meckel gruber syndrome, is related to polydactyly and joubert syndrome. An important gene associated with Meckel Syndrome is TMEM67 (transmembrane protein 67). Affiliated tissues include kidney, brain and liver, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and vision/eye.

Disease Ontology:9 An autosomal recessive disease that is characterized by renal cystic dysplasia, occipital encephalocele, polydactyly (post axial), hepatic developmental defects, and pulmonary hypoplasia caused by dysfunction of primary cilia (ciliopathy) during early embryogenesis.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Meckel syndrome is a disorder with severe signs and symptoms that affect many parts of the body. The most common features are enlarged kidneys with numerous fluid-filled cysts; an occipital encephalocele, which is a sac-like protrusion of the brain through an opening at the back of the skull; and the presence of extra fingers and toes (polydactyly). Most affected individuals also have a buildup of scar tissue (fibrosis) in the liver.
