MedGen UID:
419746
Concept ID:
C2931218
Disease or Syndrome
Synonyms: Tetraamelia multiple malformations X-linked; Zimmer phocomelia; Zimmer Taub Sova syndrome
SNOMED CT: Tetraamelia with multiple malformation syndrome (716249009); Zimmer phocomelia (716249009); Tetra-amelia with multiple malformation syndrome (716249009)
Modes of inheritance:
Autosomal recessive inheritance
MedGen UID:
141025
Concept ID:
C0441748
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 individuals with two pathogenic alleles, either homozygotes (two copies of the same mutant allele) or compound heterozygotes (whereby each copy of a gene has a distinct mutant allele).
X-linked recessive inheritance
MedGen UID:
375779
Concept ID:
C1845977
Finding
Source: Orphanet
A mode of inheritance that is observed for recessive traits related to a gene encoded on the X chromosome. In the context of medical genetics, X-linked recessive disorders manifest in males (who have one copy of the X chromosome and are thus hemizygotes), but generally not in female heterozygotes who have one mutant and one normal allele.
