OMIM:51 Melnick-Needles syndrome is 1 of 4 otopalatodigital syndromes caused by mutations in the FLNA gene. These disorders,... (309350) more...
MalaCards based summary: Melnick-Needles Syndrome, also known as mns, is related to frontometaphyseal dysplasia and otopalatodigital syndrome, type ii, and has symptoms including abnormality of the fontanelles or cranial sutures, hypertelorism and prominent supraorbital ridges. An important gene associated with Melnick-Needles Syndrome is FLNA (Filamin A). Affiliated tissues include bone, kidney and heart.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Melnick-Needles syndrome is a disorder involving abnormalities in skeletal development and other health problems. It is a member of a group of related conditions called otopalatodigital spectrum disorders, which also includes otopalatodigital syndrome type 1, otopalatodigital syndrome type 2, and frontometaphyseal dysplasia. In general, these disorders involve hearing loss caused by malformations in the tiny bones in the ears (ossicles), problems in the development of the roof of the mouth (palate), and skeletal abnormalities involving the fingers and/or toes (digits).
NIH Rare Diseases:47 Melnick-Needles syndrome is a rare disorder involving abnormalities in skeletal development and other health problems. It is a member of a group of related conditions called otopalatodigital spectrum disorders, which typically involve hearing loss caused by malformations in the tiny bones in the ears (ossicles), problems in the development of the roof of the mouth (palate), and skeletal abnormalities involving the fingers and/or toes (digits). Melnick-Needles syndrome is usually the most severe of the otopalatodigital spectrum disorders. This condition is caused by a mutation in the FLNA gene, and it has X-linked dominant inheritance.
