Summaries for Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrima Syndrome

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Triple A syndrome is an inherited condition characterized by three specific features: achalasia, Addison disease, and alacrima. Achalasia is a disorder that affects the ability to move food through the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. It can lead to severe feeding difficulties and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Addison disease, also known as primary adrenal insufficiency, is caused by abnormal function of the small hormone-producing glands on top of each kidney (adrenal glands). The main features of Addison disease include fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, low blood pressure, and darkening of the skin. The third major feature of triple A syndrome is a reduced or absent ability to secrete tears (alacrima). Most people with triple A syndrome have all three of these features, although some have only two. Many of the features of triple A syndrome are caused by dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous system controls involuntary body processes such as digestion, blood pressure, and body temperature. People with triple A syndrome often experience abnormal sweating, difficulty regulating blood pressure, unequal pupil size (anisocoria), and other signs and symptoms of autonomic nervous system dysfunction (dysautonomia). People with this condition may have other neurological abnormalities, such as developmental delay, intellectual disability, speech problems (dysarthria), and a small head size (microcephaly). In addition, affected individuals commonly experience muscle weakness, movement problems, and nerve abnormalities in their extremities (peripheral neuropathy). Some develop optic atrophy, which is the degeneration (atrophy) of the nerves that carry information from the eyes to the brain. Many of the neurological symptoms of triple A syndrome worsen over time. People with triple A syndrome frequently develop a thickening of the outer layer of skin (hyperkeratosis) on the palms of their hands and the soles of their feet. Other skin abnormalities may also be present in people with this condition. Alacrima is usually the first noticeable sign of triple A syndrome, as it becomes apparent early in life that affected children produce little or no tears while crying. They develop Addison disease and achalasia during childhood or adolescence, and most of the neurologic features of triple A syndrome begin during adulthood. The signs and symptoms of this condition vary among affected individuals, even among members of the same family.

MalaCards based summary : Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrima Syndrome, also known as allgrove syndrome, is related to adrenal insufficiency, congenital, with 46,xy sex reversal, partial or complete and achalasia, and has symptoms including ataxia and muscle weakness. An important gene associated with Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrima Syndrome is AAAS (Aladin WD Repeat Nucleoporin). The drugs Triamcinolone and Propofol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, pituitary and adrenal gland, and related phenotypes are seizures and achalasia

Disease Ontology : 12 An autosomal recessive disease characterized by achalasia, adrenal insufficiency and alacrima and has material basis in mutations in the AAAS gene that encodes ALADIN within the nuclear envelope and results in dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Triple A syndrome is an inherited condition characterized by three specific features: achalasia, Addison disease, and alacrima (a reduced or absent ability to secrete tears). Most people with triple A syndrome have all three of these features, although some have only two. Several authors published descriptions of a more global autonomic disturbance associated with the original three characteristics, leading one author to suggest the name 4A syndrome (adrenal insufficiency, achalasia, alacrima, autonomic abnormalities). Specific autonomic disturbances described in this syndrome include abnormal pupillary reflexes, poor heart rate variability, and orthostatic hypotension. Affected individuals may also have developmental delay, intellectual disability, speech problems, a small head size, muscle weakness, movement problems, peripheral neuropathy, and optic atrophy. Many of the neurological symptoms of triple A syndrome worsen over time. Triple A syndrome is caused by mutations in the AAAS gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Alacrimia is treated with artificial tears while achalasia may need surgery with either pneumatic dilatation or Heller's myotomy. Adrenal insufficiency is treated with glucocorticoid and if necessary mineralocorticoid replacement.

KEGG : 37
Achalasia-Addisonianism-Alacrima (AAA) syndrome, also known as triple-A syndrome, is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by alacrima, achalasia, adrenal insufficiency and autonomic instability caused by mutation in the AAAS gene on 12q13. Recently, it has been reported that mutations in GMPPA cause alacrima, achalasia, and mental retardation syndrome (AAMR), that shows similarity to the triple A syndrome.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 74 Achalasia-addisonianism-alacrima syndrome: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by adreno-corticotropic hormone (ACTH)-resistant adrenal failure, achalasia of the esophageal cardia and alacrima. The syndrome is associated with variable and progressive neurological impairment involving the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous system. Other features such as palmoplantar hyperkeratosis, short stature, facial dysmorphy and osteoporosis may also be present.
