Summaries for Prune Belly Syndrome

GARD : 20 Prune belly syndrome (PBS) is a condition characterized by a lack of abdominal muscles, causing the skin on the abdominal area to wrinkle and appear "prune-like"; undescended testicles in males; and urinary tract malformations. PBS is more common in males. The severity of symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. At one end of the spectrum, the condition may cause severe kidney and pulmonary (lung) problems incompatible with life (resulting in stillbirth ); at the other end of the spectrum, the condition may cause few, if any, urological abnormalities. The cause of PBS is unknown. Treatment varies, but usually includes surgical management of symptoms.

MalaCards based summary : Prune Belly Syndrome, also known as eagle-barrett syndrome, is related to renal dysplasia and hydronephrosis. An important gene associated with Prune Belly Syndrome is CHRM3 (Cholinergic Receptor Muscarinic 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Salmonella Infection (Qiagen) and Muscular Dystrophies and Dystrophin-Glycoprotein Complex. The drugs Testosterone and Hormone Antagonists have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, testes and bone, and related phenotypes are cryptorchidism and decreased fertility

Disease Ontology : 12 A syndrome that is characterized by megacystis with disorganized detrusor muscle, cryptorchidism, and thin abdominal musculature with overlying lax skin and that has material basis in homozygous mutation in the CHRM3 gene on chromosome 1q43.

OMIM® : 57 In its rare complete form, 'prune belly' syndrome comprises megacystis (massively enlarged bladder) with disorganized detrusor muscle, cryptorchidism, and thin abdominal musculature with overlying lax skin (summary by Weber et al., 2011). (100100) (Updated 05-Apr-2021)

KEGG : 36 Prune belly syndrome (PBS) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by deficient or absent abdominal wall musculature, hypotonia, ectasia of the urinary system, and bilateral intra-abdominal testes. A homozygous loss-of-function mutation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M3 (CHRM3) has been described from patients with a PBS-like syndrome. CHRM3 encodes the major receptor mediating urinary bladder contraction upon micturition.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 72 Prune belly syndrome: A syndrome characterized by thin abdominal musculature with overlying lax skin, cryptorchism, megacystis with disorganized detrusor muscle, and urinary tract abnormalities.

Wikipedia : 73 Prune belly syndrome is a rare, genetic birth defect affecting about 1 in 40,000 births. About 97% of... more...
