Summaries for Vohwinkel Syndrome

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Vohwinkel syndrome is an inherited condition that affects the skin. people with the "classic form" generally have honeycomb-patterned calluses on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet (palmoplantar keratoses); constricting bands of tissue on the fingers and toes which can cause amputation; starfish-shaped, thickened skin on the tops of the fingers and knees; and hearing loss. a "variant form" of vohwinkel syndrome has also been identified which is characterized by ichthyosis in addition to the classic skin abnormalities and is not associated with hearing loss. classic vohwinkel syndrome is caused by changes (mutations) in the gjb2 gene and the variant form is caused by mutations in the lor gene. both are inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. although there is currently no cure for the condition, treatments are available to alleviate symptoms. last updated: 12/18/2015

MalaCards based summary: Vohwinkel Syndrome, also known as keratoderma hereditarium mutilans, is related to ichthyosis vulgaris and vohwinkel syndrome with ichthyosis, and has symptoms including sensorineural hearing impairment, cognitive impairment and abnormality of the genital system. An important gene associated with Vohwinkel Syndrome is GJB2 (Gap Junction Protein Beta 2). Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and small intestine.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Vohwinkel syndrome: VS is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by hyperkeratosis, constriction on fingers and toes and congenital deafness.

Genetics Home Reference:23 Vohwinkel syndrome is a disorder with classic and variant forms, both of which affect the skin.
