NIH Rare Diseases:45 Pearson syndrome is a mitochondrial disorder characterized by transfusion-dependent sideroblastic anemia and pancreatic dysfunction resulting in in malabsorption and chronic diarrhea. the features of this progressive disorder may change over time. individuals who survive beyond infancy often develop the symptoms of kearns-sayre syndrome or leigh syndrome. pearson syndrome is caused by deletions in mitochondrial dna. inheritance is usually sporadic. last updated: 11/21/2011
MalaCards based summary: Pearson Syndrome, also known as pearson marrow-pancreas syndrome, is related to anemia, sideroblastic, pyridoxine-refractory, autosomal recessive and pancytopenia, and has symptoms including abnormal pigmentary skin changes/skin pigmentation anomalies, malabsorption/chronic diarrhea/steatorrhea and storage liver disease. An important gene associated with Pearson Syndrome is MT-TK (Mitochondrially Encoded TRNA Lysine). Affiliated tissues include pancreas, bone and bone marrow.
Disease Ontology:10 A mitochondrial metabolism disease that is characterized by sideroblastic anemia and exocrine pancreas dysfunction.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Pearson marrow-pancreas syndrome is a severe disorder that usually begins in infancy. It causes problems with the development of blood-forming (hematopoietic) cells in the bone marrow that have the potential to develop into different types of blood cells. For this reason, Pearson marrow-pancreas syndrome is considered a bone marrow failure disorder. Function of the pancreas and other organs can also be affected.
