Synonym: Unusual facial appearance, skeletal deformities, and musculoskeletal and sensory defects
SNOMED CT: Cyprus facial neuromusculoskeletal syndrome (732261005)
Modes of inheritance:
Autosomal dominant inheritance
MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C0443147
Intellectual Product
Source: Orphanet
A mode of inheritance that is observed for traits related to a gene encoded on one of the autosomes (i.e., the human chromosomes 1-22) in which a trait manifests in heterozygotes. In the context of medical genetics, an autosomal dominant disorder is caused when a single copy of the mutant allele is present. Males and females are affected equally, and can both transmit the disorder with a risk of 50% for each child of inheriting the mutant allele.

Definition

The syndrome has been described in a single Greek Cypriot family, over three generations. There have been no further descriptions in the literature since 1992. Affected individuals have a striking facial appearance (described as Mephistophelian) and variable skeletal deformities and neuromuscular abnormalities. The facial appearance consists of a thickened, ridged, triangular skin fold extending from the glabella to the anterior fontanelle, elevation of the medial portion of the eyebrows bilaterally, hypertelorism, low-set ears, posteriorly rotated ears and widow''s peak. Musculoskeletal features may coexist and include congenital kyphoscoliosis, hip dislocation, congenital talipes equinovarus and arthrogryposis. Neurological and musculoskeletal defects are severe and incapacitating in some affected family members, while all have normal intelligence. The cause of this syndrome is not known. [from SNOMEDCT_US]
