Summaries for Curry-Jones Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 The following summary is from Orphanet , a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs. Orpha Number: 1553 Definition Curry-Jones syndrome is a form of syndromic craniosynostosis characterized by unilateral coronal craniosynostosis or multiple suture synostosis associated with complete or partial agenesis of the corpus callosum , preaxial polysyndactyly and syndactyly of hands and/or feet, along with anomalies of the skin (characteristic pearly white areas that become scarred and atrophic, abnormal hair growth around the eyes and/or cheeks, and on the limbs), eyes (iris colobomas, microphthalmia,) and intestine (congenital short gut, malrotation, dysmotility, chronic constipation, bleeding and myofibromas). Developmental delay and variable degrees of intellectual disability may also be observed. Multiple intra-abdominal smooth muscle hamartomas, trichoblastoma of the skin, occipital meningoceles and development of desmoplastic medulloblastoma have been reported. Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

MalaCards based summary : Curry-Jones Syndrome, also known as craniofacial malformations, asymmetric, with polysyndactyly and abnormal skin and gut development, is related to silver-russell syndrome 1 and contractural arachnodactyly, congenital. An important gene associated with Curry-Jones Syndrome is SMO (Smoothened, Frizzled Class Receptor). The drugs Zinc and Copper have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and smooth muscle, and related phenotypes are hypertelorism and hypopigmented skin patches

OMIM : 56 Curry-Jones syndrome is a multisystem disorder characterized by patchy skin lesions, polysyndactyly, diverse cerebral malformations, unicoronal craniosynostosis, iris colobomas, microphthalmia, and intestinal malrotation with myofibromas or hamartomas (summary by Twigg et al., 2016).
