UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Neurogenic scapuloperoneal syndrome Kaeser type: Autosomal dominant disorder with a peculiar scapuloperoneal distribution of weakness and atrophy. A large clinical variability is observed ranging from scapuloperoneal, limb grindle and distal phenotypes with variable cardiac or respiratory involvement. Facial weakness, dysphagia and gynaecomastia are frequent additional symptoms. Affected men seemingly bear a higher risk of sudden, cardiac death as compared to affected women. Histological and immunohistochemical examination of muscle biopsy specimens reveal a wide spectrum of findings ranging from near normal or unspecific pathology to typical, myofibrillar changes with accumulation of desmin.
MalaCards based summary: Scapuloperoneal Syndrome, Neurogenic, Kaeser Type, is also known as kaeser syndrome, and has symptoms including talipes equinovarus, scapuloperoneal weakness and shoulder girdle muscle atrophy. An important gene associated with Scapuloperoneal Syndrome, Neurogenic, Kaeser Type is DES (Desmin).
