Summaries for Mohr-Tranebjaerg Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.Orpha Number: 52368Disease definitionMohr-Tranebjaerg syndrome (MTS) is an X-linked recessive neurodegenerative syndrome characterized by clinical manifestations commencing with early childhood onset hearing loss, followed by adolescent onset progressive dystonia or ataxia, visual impairment from early adulthood onwards and dementia from the 4th decade onwards.EpidemiologyPrevalence is unknown. More than 90 cases (37 families) are known, but not all cases have been reported in the literature.Clinical descriptionThe onset of rapidly progressive prelingual or postlingual sensorineural hearing loss, the only typical symptom, occurs in early childhood (18 months). Neuropsychologic manifestations, such as personality changes, paranoia, and mild intellectual deficit may emerge at the same time. A slowly progressive movement disorder, appearing as gegenhalten (diffuse resistance to limb movement), dystonia (mostly generalized or focal) or ataxia develops from early adolescence and is associated with brisk tendon reflexes, ankle clonus and extensor plantar responses. Patients experience reduced visual acuity, photophobia, acquired color vision defect and central scotomas starting from about 20 years of age and leading to legal blindness at around age 30 to 40. Slowly progressive dementia develops from the 4th decade onwards. In those with a contiguous genedeletion syndrome (CGS), recurrent infections may be present. Carrier females may be mildly affected with mild hearing impairment and focal dystonia.EtiologyMTS is caused by either a mutation in the TIMM8A gene (located to Xq22) or by a CGS at Xq22, resulting in a deafness-dystonia peptide 1 (DDP1) deficiency. If the CGS includes the Bruton agammaglobulinemia tyrosine kinase (BTK) gene, recurrent infections secondary to this X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA; see this term) are present.Diagnostic methodsA combination of hearing impairment and recurrent infections due to XLA in a male patient should elicit sequencing of the TIMM8A gene. Neuroimaging is employed to verify the presence of cerebral atrophy. In cases of suspected CGS; testing for XLA is possible.Differential diagnosisDifferential diagnosis includes MELAS syndrome; mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (encephalomyopathic form with methylmalonic aciduria); Arts syndrome; X-linked spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 and 4; McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome; Usher syndrome type 1 and 2; Wolfram syndrome; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness type DFNB; Pendred syndrome; and other forms of dystonia or rarely Friedreich ataxia (see these terms).Antenatal diagnosisPrenatal diagnosis may be proposed to affected couples or parents for further pregnancies.Genetic counselingMTS is transmitted in an X-linked recessive manner. Genetic counseling should be provided to affected families.Management and treatmentTreatment of MTS is symptomatic and evolves over time. Hearing aids are used with variable success. For mild hearing loss, a hearing device and cochlear implants are an option whereas hearing aids with visual clues are used in cases with more severe hearing loss. Management of dystonia and ataxia includes treatment with GABA β-agonists together with psycho-motor re-education and physical therapy. Other supportive measures include therapies for the deaf-blind, addressing progressive sensory deficits, such as tactile sign language. In those with secondary complications, intravenous immunoglobulin may prevent infections in XLA. Furthermore, live viral vaccines should be avoided in cases of XLA. In adulthood, regular neurological evaluation (assessment for dementia and/or psychiatric manifestations) should be maintained.PrognosisPrognosis is poor. The combination of deafness and blindness severely affects communication, while the ongoing movement disorder results in an increasingly unstable gait. Life expectancy is highly variable and can range from death in the teenage years (after a rapidly progressive dystonia) to those that live into their 60's.Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

MalaCards based summary : Mohr-Tranebjaerg Syndrome, also known as jensen syndrome, is related to gorlin bushkell jensen syndrome and dentin dysplasia, type i, and has symptoms including dystonia, muscle spasticity and tremor. An important gene associated with Mohr-Tranebjaerg Syndrome is TIMM8A (Translocase Of Inner Mitochondrial Membrane 8A). Affiliated tissues include testes, brain and bone, and related phenotypes are progressive sensorineural hearing impairment and visual impairment

Disease Ontology : 12 A mitochondrial metabolism disease that is characterized by hearing loss that begins early in life, problems with movement, impaired vision, and behavior problems.

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Deafness-dystonia-optic neuronopathy (DDON) syndrome, also known as Mohr-Tranebjærg syndrome, is characterized by hearing loss that begins early in life, problems with movement, impaired vision, and behavior problems. This condition occurs almost exclusively in males.
