MalaCards based summary: White Sponge Nevus 1, also known as white sponge nevus of cannon, is related to white sponge nevus 2 and waisman syndrome, and has symptoms including oral leukoplakiaand abnormality of metabolism/homeostasis. An important gene associated with White Sponge Nevus 1 is KRT4 (Keratin 4), and among its related pathways is Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. Affiliated tissues include skin, and related mouse phenotypes are digestive/alimentary and integument.
Disease Ontology:10 A skin disease characterized by a defect in the normal process of keratinization of the mucosa.
Genetics Home Reference:23 White sponge nevus is a condition characterized by the formation of white patches of tissue called nevi (singular: nevus) that appear as thickened, velvety, sponge-like tissue. The nevi are most commonly found on the moist lining of the mouth (oral mucosa), especially on the inside of the cheeks (buccal mucosa). Affected individuals usually develop multiple nevi. Rarely, white sponge nevi also occur on the mucosae (singular: mucosa) of the nose, esophagus, genitals, or anus. The nevi are caused by a noncancerous (benign) overgrowth of cells.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 White sponge nevus 1: A rare disorder characterized by the presence of soft, white, and spongy plaques in the oral mucosa. The characteristic histopathologic features are epithelial thickening, parakeratosis, and vacuolization of the suprabasal layer of oral epithelial keratinocytes. Less frequently the mucous membranes of the nose, esophagus, genitalia and rectum are involved.
