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 vomiting following gastrointestinal surgeryand constipation. An important gene associated with Megacolon is SOX10 (SRY-Box 10), and among its related pathways are TGF-beta Signaling Pathway (sino) and NCAM1 interactions. Affiliated tissues include colon, liver and heart, and related mouse phenotypes are embryo and respiratory system.

Disease Ontology:10 A colonic disease that is characterized by an abnormal dilation of the colon.
