MalaCards based summary: Megacolon, also known as megacolon, not hirschsprung's, is related to hirschsprung disease 1 and shprintzen-goldberg syndrome, and has symptoms including constipation and vomiting following gastrointestinal surgery. An important gene associated with Megacolon is SOX10 (SRY-Box 10), and among its related pathways are Sympathetic Nerve Pathway (Pre- and Post- Ganglionic Junction) and Acetylcholine Synthesis. Affiliated tissues include colon, heart and smooth muscle, and related mouse phenotypes are limbs/digits/tail and normal.

Disease Ontology:11 A colonic disease that is characterized by an abnormal dilation of the colon.
