Familial cutaneous collagenoma

MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Neoplastic Process
Synonym: Collagenoma, Familial Cutaneous
SNOMED CT: Familial cutaneous collagenoma (239139000)
Modes of inheritance:
Autosomal dominant inheritance
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
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.

Familial cutaneous collagenoma is a connective tissue nevus characterized by multiple, flesh-colored asymptomatic nodules distributed symmetrically on the trunk and upper arms (mainly on the upper two-thirds of the back), manifesting around adolescence. The skin biopsy reveals an accumulation of collagen fibers with reduction in the number of elastic fibers. Cardiac anomalies may be observed. Familial cutaneous collagenoma follows an autosomal dominant mode of transmission. [from ORDO]

Clinical features

From HPO
Primary testicular failure
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Testicular failure due to a condition directly affecting the testes.
Atrial fibrillation
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
An atrial arrhythmia characterized by disorganized atrial activity without discrete P waves on the surface EKG, but instead by an undulating baseline or more sharply circumscribed atrial deflections of varying amplitude an frequency ranging from 350 to 600 per minute.
Congestive heart failure
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
The presence of an abnormality of cardiac function that is responsible for the failure of the heart to pump blood at a rate that is commensurate with the needs of the tissues or a state in which abnormally elevated filling pressures are required for the heart to do so. Heart failure is frequently related to a defect in myocardial contraction.
Tricuspid regurgitation
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Failure of the tricuspid valve to close sufficiently upon contraction of the right ventricle, causing blood to regurgitate (flow backward) into the right atrium.
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Inflammation of blood vessel.
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
A myocardial disorder in which the heart muscle is structurally and functionally abnormal, in the absence of coronary artery disease, hypertension, valvular disease and congenital heart disease sufficient to cause the observed myocardial abnormality.
Right ventricular cardiomyopathy
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Right ventricular dysfunction (global or regional) with functional and morphological right ventricular abnormalities, with or without left ventricular disease.
Sensorineural hearing impairment
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
A type of hearing impairment in one or both ears related to an abnormal functionality of the cochlear nerve.
Congenital posterior occipital alopecia
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Congenital Abnormality
Loss of hair in the occipital region of the scalp with congenital onset.
Iris atrophy
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Loss of iris tissue (atrophy)
