Summaries for Currarino Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 Currarino triad or syndrome is an autosomal dominant hereditary condition which is characterized by the triad of sacral agenesis abnormalities (abnormally developed lower spine), anorectal malformation (most commonly in the form of anorectal stenosis ) and presacral mass consisting of a teratoma , anterior sacral meningocele or both. However only 1 out of 5 cases of Currarino triad has all three abnormalities present. Currarino triad is considered a spectrum disorder with a wide variation in severity. Up to one-third of the patients are asymptomatic and may only be diagnosed during adulthood only on X-rays and ultrasound examinations that are performed for different reasons. Currarino triad is most often caused by mutations in the MNX1 gene . Treatment depends on the type and severity of abnormalities present, but may involve surgery.

MalaCards based summary : Currarino Syndrome, also known as currarino triad, is related to sacral defect with anterior meningocele and anus, imperforate, and has symptoms including chronic constipation An important gene associated with Currarino Syndrome is MNX1 (Motor Neuron And Pancreas Homeobox 1). Affiliated tissues include bone, kidney and uterus, and related phenotypes are sacrococcygeal teratoma and aplasia/hypoplasia of the sacrum

KEGG : 36 Currarino syndrome is a condition characterized by the combination of sacral malformation, hindgut anomaly, and presacral mass. The HLXB9 gene is responsible for the symdrome.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Currarino syndrome: The triad of a presacral tumor, sacral agenesis and anorectal malformation constitutes the Currarino syndrome which is caused by dorsal-ventral patterning defects during embryonic development. The syndrome occurs in the majority of patients as an autosomal dominant trait.

Wikipedia : 74 The Currarino syndrome is an inherited congenital disorder where either the sacrum (the fused vertebrae... more...
