MalaCards based summary: Proteus Syndrome, Somatic, also known as proteus syndrome, is related to pten-related proteus syndrome and macrocephaly mesodermal hamartoma spectrum, and has symptoms including tall stature, melanocytic nevus and multiple lipomas. An important gene associated with Proteus Syndrome, Somatic is AKT1 (AKT Serine/Threonine Kinase 1), and among its related pathways are TP53 Regulates Metabolic Genes and VEGF Signaling. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and lung, and related mouse phenotypes are reproductive system and embryo.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Proteus syndrome is a rare condition characterized by overgrowth of the bones, skin, and other tissues. Organs and tissues affected by the disease grow out of proportion to the rest of the body. The overgrowth is usually asymmetric, which means it affects the right and left sides of the body differently. Newborns with Proteus syndrome have few or no signs of the condition. Overgrowth becomes apparent between the ages of 6 and 18 months and gets more severe with age.
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Proteus syndrome is characterized by excessive growth of a part or portion of the body. the overgrowth can cause differences in appearance and with time, an increased risk for blood clots and tumors. it is caused by a change (mutation) in the akt1 gene. it is not inherited, but occurs as a random mutation in a body cell in a developing baby (fetus) early in pregnancy. the akt1 gene mutation affects only a portion of the body cells. this is why only a portion of the body is affected and why individuals with proteus syndrome can be very differently affected. management of the condition often requires a team of specialists with knowledge of the wide array of features and complications of this condition. last updated: 9/28/2011

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Proteus syndrome: A highly variable, severe disorder of asymmetric and disproportionate overgrowth of body parts, connective tissue nevi, epidermal nevi, dysregulated adipose tissue, and vascular malformations. Many features of Proteus syndrome overlap with other overgrowth syndromes.
