Summaries for Podoconiosis

OMIM : 53 Podoconiosis, or endemic nonfilarial elephantiasis, is a noninfectious geochemical disease characterized by edema of the foot and lower leg that progresses to severe elephantiasis. It is a chronic and debilitating disorder that is a public health problem in at least 10 countries in tropical Africa, Central America, and northern India. Podoconiosis occurs among subsistence farmers and other occupational groups whose feet are exposed over many years to red clay soil derived from alkalic volcanic rock. However, podoconiosis develops only in a subgroup of exposed people, and studies have shown familial clustering with high heritability (summary by Davey et al. (2007) and Tekola Ayele et al. (2012)).

MalaCards based summary : Podoconiosis, also known as podoconiosis, susceptibility to, is related to elephantiasis and filarial elephantiasis. An important gene associated with Podoconiosis is PDCOS (Podoconiosis, Susceptibility To), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs). The drugs Glycerol and Petrolatum have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin and testes.
