NIH Rare Diseases:47 Nance-Horan syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that may be evident at birth. It is characterized by teeth abnormalities and cataracts, resulting in poor vision. Additional eye abnormalities are also often present, including a very small cornea and nystagmus. In some cases, the condition may also be associated with physical abnormalities and/or intellectual disability. The range and severity of symptoms may vary greatly from one person to another, even among affected members of the same family. Nance-Horan syndrome is caused by a mutation in the NHS gene and is inherited as an X-linked dominant trait, which means that both males and females can be affected, but males often have more severe symptoms.The treatment is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in the individual.

MalaCards based summary: Nance-Horan Syndrome, also known as cataract-dental syndrome, is related to cataract 40, x-linked and hemochromatosis, neonatal, and has symptoms including long face, mandibular prognathia and prominent nasal bridge. An important gene associated with Nance-Horan Syndrome is NHS (NHS Actin Remodeling Regulator). Affiliated tissues include eye and bone.
Disease Ontology:11 An X-linked disease that has material basis in mutation in the NHS gene on chromosome Xp22. It is characterized by congenital cataract leading to profound vision loss, characteristic dysmorphic features and dental anomalies.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Nance-Horan syndrome: Rare X-linked disorder characterized by congenital cataracts, dental anomalies, dysmorphic features, and, in some cases, mental retardation. Distinctive dental anomalies are seen in affected males, including supernumerary incisors and crown shaped permanent teeth. Characteristic facial features are anteverted pinnae, long face, and prominent nasal bridge and nose. Carrier females display milder variable symptoms of disease with lens opacities often involving the posterior Y sutures, and on occasion dental anomalies and the characteristic facial features described.
