About this section

Genetics Home Reference:21 Meier-Gorlin syndrome is a condition primarily characterized by short stature. It is considered a form of primordial dwarfism because the growth problems begin before birth (intrauterine growth retardation). After birth, affected individuals continue to grow at a slow rate. Other characteristic features of this condition are underdeveloped or missing kneecaps (patellae), small ears, and, often, an abnormally small head (microcephaly). Despite a small head size, most people with Meier-Gorlin syndrome have normal intellect.

MalaCards based summary: Meier-Gorlin Syndrome, also known as ear, patella, short stature syndrome, is related to meier-gorlin syndrome 1 and meier-gorlin syndrome 2. An important gene associated with Meier-Gorlin Syndrome is ORC6 (origin recognition complex, subunit 6), and among its related pathways are Cell Cycle Control of Chromosomal Replication and RB in Cancer.

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Meier-gorlin syndrome is a condition that affects many parts of the body. this disorder is characterized by small ears, absent patellae (kneecaps), and short stature. there are several types of meier-gorlin syndrome, each classified by the specific genes affected. this condition has an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. last updated: 5/14/2012
