Summaries for Pierson Syndrome

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Pierson syndrome is a very rare condition that mainly affects the kidneys and eyes. signs and symptoms include congenital nephrotic syndrome and distinct ocular (eye) abnormalities, including microcoria (small pupils that are not responsive to light). most affected children have early-onset, chronic renal failure; neurodevelopmental problems; and blindness. hypotonia (poor muscle tone) and movement disorders have also been reported. pierson syndrome is caused by changes (mutations) in the lamb2 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. the long-term outlook is poor; affected infants may not survive past the first weeks or months of life. last updated: 3/23/2016

MalaCards based summary: Pierson Syndrome, also known as microcoria-congenital nephrotic syndrome, is related to nephrotic syndrome and nephrotic syndrome, type 5, with or without ocular abnormalities, and has symptoms including proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome and cataract. An important gene associated with Pierson Syndrome is LAMB2 (Laminin Subunit Beta 2), and among its related pathways are Pathways in cancer and PI3K-Akt signaling pathway. Affiliated tissues include eye, kidney and breast.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Pierson syndrome: Characterized by nephrotic syndrome with neonatal onset, diffuse mesangial sclerosis and eye abnormalities with microcoria as the leading clinical feature. Death usually occurs within the first weeks of life. Disease severity depends on the mutation type: nontruncating LAMB2 mutations may display variable phenotypes ranging from a milder variant of Pierson syndrome to isolated congenital nephrotic syndrome.
