Summaries for Netherton Syndrome

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Netherton syndrome is a disorder that affects the skin, hair, and immune system. Newborns with Netherton syndrome have skin that is red and scaly (ichthyosiform erythroderma), and the skin may leak fluid. Some affected infants are born with a tight, clear sheath covering their skin called a collodion membrane. This membrane is usually shed during the first few weeks of life. Because newborns with this disorder are missing the protection provided by normal skin, they are at risk of becoming dehydrated and developing infections in the skin or throughout the body (sepsis), which can be life-threatening. Affected babies may also fail to grow and gain weight at the expected rate (failure to thrive). The health of older children and adults with Netherton syndrome usually improves, although they often remain underweight and of short stature.

MalaCards based summary : Netherton Syndrome, also known as netherton disease, is related to colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer, and has symptoms including seizures, dry skin and intellectual disability. An important gene associated with Netherton Syndrome is SPINK5 (Serine Peptidase Inhibitor, Kazal Type 5), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Developmental Biology and Defensins. The drugs Pimecrolimus and Tacrolimus have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and kidney.

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 netherton syndrome is a type of ichthyosis. symptoms vary but commonly include inflamed, red, scaly skin, short, brittle, lustreless hair, and a predisposition to allergy problems (e.g., to nuts, hay fever, and asthma).  symptoms may be mild or severe and tend to present in infancy. failure to thrive and recurrent infection are possible complications in infants with this syndrome. netherton syndrome is caused by mutations in the spink5 gene. it is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. the goals of treatment are to manage symptoms and prevent skin infections and other complications. this may include the use of lotions and creams, antibiotics, topical steroids and other therapies. last updated: 4/21/2016

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 66 Netherton syndrome: An autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis associated with hair shaft abnormalities and anomalies of the immune system. Typical features are ichthyosis linearis circumflexa, ichthyosiform erythroderma, trichorrhexis invaginata (bamboo hair), atopic dermatitis, and hayfever. High postnatal mortality is due to failure to thrive, infections and hypernatremic dehydration.
