MalaCards based summary: Monilethrix, also known as beaded hair, is related to hypotrichosis 6 and ocular motility disease, and has symptoms including abnormality of the eyebrow, hyperkeratosis and alopecia. An important gene associated with Monilethrix is KRT83 (Keratin 83), and among its related pathways is Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. Affiliated tissues include skin and cortex.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Monilethrix is a condition that affects hair growth. Its most characteristic feature is that individual strands of hair have a beaded appearance like the beads of a necklace. The name monilethrix comes from the Latin word for necklace (monile) and the Greek word for hair (thrix). Noticeable when viewed under a microscope, the beaded appearance is due to periodic narrowing of the hair shaft. People with monilethrix also have sparse hair growth (hypotrichosis) and short, brittle hair that breaks easily.
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Monilethrix is a rare condition caused by a defect in the hair shaft resulting in hair which appears dry, dull, and brittle, and which breaks spontaneously or with mild trauma. the age of onset, severity, and course may vary from person to person. last updated: 10/5/2015
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Monilethrix: A disorder clinically characterized by alopecia and follicular papules. Affected hairs have uniform elliptical nodes of normal thickness and intermittent constrictions, internodes at which the hair easily breaks. Usually only the scalp is involved, but in severe forms, the secondary sexual hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, and nails may also be affected.
