Summaries for White Sponge Nevus 1

OMIM : 57 White sponge nevus is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of noncornifying squamous epithelial differentiation that presents clinically as white, soft, thick plaques of the oral mucosa. Less frequently, the mucous membranes of the nose, esophagus, genitalia, and rectum are involved. Histopathologic features, including epithelial thickening, parakeratosis, extensive vacuolization of the suprabasal keratinocytes, and compact aggregates of keratin intermediate filaments in the upper spinus layers resemble those found in epidermal disorders shown to be associated with keratin defects (summary by Richard et al., 1995). (193900)

MalaCards based summary : White Sponge Nevus 1, also known as white sponge nevus of cannon, is related to white sponge nevus 2 and dyskeratosis, hereditary benign intraepithelial. An important gene associated with White Sponge Nevus 1 is KRT4 (Keratin 4), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Developmental Biology and Circadian entrainment. Affiliated tissues include skin and tongue, and related phenotypes are abnormality of metabolism/homeostasis and oral leukoplakia

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 75 White sponge nevus 1: A rare disorder characterized by the presence of soft, white, and spongy plaques in the oral mucosa. The characteristic histopathologic features are epithelial thickening, parakeratosis, and vacuolization of the suprabasal layer of oral epithelial keratinocytes. Less frequently the mucous membranes of the nose, esophagus, genitalia and rectum are involved.

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 The following summary is from Orphanet, a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs.Orpha Number: 171723Disease definitionWhite sponge nevus (WSN) is a rare and autosomal dominant genetic disease in which the oral mucosa is white or greyish, thickened, folded, and spongy. The onset is early in life, and both sexes are affected equally. Other common sites include the tongue, floor of the mouth, and alveolar mucosa.Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

Genetics Home Reference : 25 White sponge nevus is a condition characterized by the formation of white patches of tissue called nevi (singular: nevus) that appear as thickened, velvety, sponge-like tissue. The nevi are most commonly found on the moist lining of the mouth (oral mucosa), especially on the inside of the cheeks (buccal mucosa). Affected individuals usually develop multiple nevi. Rarely, white sponge nevi also occur on the mucosae (singular: mucosa) of the nose, esophagus, genitals, or anus. The nevi are caused by a noncancerous (benign) overgrowth of cells.

Disease Ontology : 12 A skin disease characterized by a defect in the normal process of keratinization of the mucosa.
