Congenital contractural arachnodactyly (Beals syndrome). (1/4)

Congenital contractural arachnodactyly (Beals syndrome) is an autosomal dominantly inherited connective tissue disorder characterized by multiple flexion contractures, arachnodactyly, severe kyphoscoliosis, abnormal pinnae and muscular hypoplasia. It is caused by a mutation in FBN2 gene on chromosome 5q23. Although the clinical features can be similar to Marfan syndrome (MFS), multiple joint contractures (especially elbow, knee and finger joints), and crumpled ears in the absence of significant aortic root dilatation are characteristic of Beals syndrome and rarely found in Marfan syndrome. The incidence of CCA is unknown and its prevalence is difficult to estimate considering the overlap in phenotype with MFS; the number of patients reported has increased following the identification of FBN2 mutation. Molecular prenatal diagnosis is possible. Ultrasound imaging may be used to demonstrate joint contractures and hypokinesia in suspected cases. Management of children with CCA is symptomatic. Spontaneous improvement in camptodactyly and contractures is observed but residual camptodactyly always remains. Early intervention for scoliosis can prevent morbidity later in life. Cardiac evaluation and ophthalmologic evaluations are recommended.  (+info)

The specialist is wanting to try another brace design first, to see if we can hold off slightly longer, however it looks like surgery will be in the near future rather than the distant future. In his words Id rather put growing rods in an 8 yr old than a 6 yr old, however we have done well to be putting them in a 6 yr old rather than a 4 yr old. We have a brace review at the end of January to discuss options for a new design which might help, however it is clear surgery is not too far away ...
Both my kids had reflux as babies, Samuel took until he was 4 to grow out of his and wean him off his medication. Evelynes reflux was not as severe as a baby, and it wasnt until we applied the cast that it became much worse and medication was needed. The tightness of the casts and braces squeeze and put pressure on the tummy and can cause the contents to be pushed back into the oesophagus. It is also uncomfortable to eat big meals and Ive heard others with spinal braces as teenagers recommend smaller, more frequent meals. At the moment Evelynes reflux is managed with medication, leaving more time between meals and bed, and avoiding some foods close to bedtime. ...

The fibrillinopathy panel is designed to detect mutations in genes that produce disorders that have similar, if not in at least some patients, identical phenotypes. These include: Marfan syndrome or Marfan like disorders caused by FBN1 mutations, congenital contractural arachnodactyly also known as Beals syndrome or arthrogryposis, distal, type 9, caused by mutations in FBN2, and homocystinuria caused by mutations in CBS.. Clicking on the individual genes listed below will link to a brief description of each disorder. Note: The presence or absence of ectopia lentis or the direction of lens dislocation has been used as a guide to clinically discriminate between these disorders. This practice seems to be controversial and probably should not be a major determinant to establish a final diagnosis.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the fibrillinopathy genes is also offered as a panel. Additionally, CTGT offers a comprehensive test (both NGS and CNV panels) for these genes. Panel genes are also ...

There are four recessive defects that can affect calves worldwide. A recessive defect occurs when both parents carry a recessive gene that will affect the calf. One in four calves will show the defect even when both parents carry the defective gene. The four recessive defects in the Black Angus breed that are currently managed with DNA tests are arthrogryposis multiplex (AM), referred to as curly calf, which lowers the mobility of joints; neuropathic hydrocephalus (NH), sometimes known as water head, which causes an enlarged malformed skull; contractural arachnodactyly (CA), formerly referred to by the name of fawn calf syndrome, which reduces mobility in the hips; and dwarfism, which affects the size of calves. Both parents need to carry the genes for a calf to be affected with one of these disorders.[18][19][20] Because of this, the American Angus Association will remove the carrier cattle from the breed in an effort to reduce the number of cases.[21] Between 2008 and 2010, the American ...

Marfan syndrome is an autosomal dominant, familial disorder of the connective tissue that is characterised by a highly variable manifestation of ocular, skeletal, cardiovascular, integumentary, pulmonary, and neurological features. The specific pathophysiology is unknown. Life expectancy is generally reduced in patients with Marfan syndrome, mainly because of cardiovascular complications such as dilatation, dissection and rupture of the aorta. The other complications that occur are muscular hypoplasia and hypotonicity, foot and hand abnormalities including arachnodactyly, and scoliosis or kyphoscoliosis. Dural ectasia is defined as a ballooning of the dural sac which is more common in patients with connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome, and may develop gradually during childhood, adolescence, or even adulthood. It can be associated with the presence of meningocoeles. An MR examination is of great value in the diagnosis of meningocoeles, by showing a homogeneous high signal ...

Among the Marfan-related conditions is congenital contractural arachnodactyly, which exhibits dolichostenomelia, progressive scoliosis, congenital joint contractures, and deformity of the helix of the ear. Some people with CCA have mitral valve prolapse but aortic dilatation or ectopia lentis should prompt consideration of Marfan syndrome. In most inherited forms of ectopia lentis, findings are limited to the eye. Some families with autosomal dominant ectopia lentis have mild skeletal and cardiovascular features suggestive of the Marfan syndrome, but do not meet diagnostic criteria; some of these families have mutations in FBN1 . Similarly, families lacking ectopia lentis and severe skeletal features, but having mitral valve prolapse, or aortic root dilatation, or both, have been shown, in a few cases, to link to or have mutations in FBN1. However, some families with autosomal dominant aortic aneurysm or dissection, and many sporadic patients with aortic aneurysm do not appear to have a mutation ...
The appearance of your face is determined by three basic components: skin, soft tissues and underlying facial bones. If the structure of your face is disproportionate - the chin is recessed or the jaw undefined - it can significantly affect your self-image.

diybio session at open science summit 2010. So, I wanted to thank the organizers for the opportunity to speak. My name is Hugh Rei.. and thsi is my daughter, Vietrice who was bron six years ago. And .. whats most striking is the fact that she has muscle weakness. its the fact that she has a number of different findings warrants the name syndrome and the syndrome does not have a name and anything else. And, uh, this is the way that I have been able to put it together clinically. She has a phenotype with syndromic features in blue and these are all, some of these are complicated names. In essence, she shares features of other syndromes and whats interesting about this to me is that these syndromes- MFS, beals, LDS, they are all related. Theres a common theme to why the clinical features overlap even though the genes are completely different. Some of these are dominant alleles, represents mutations in the fibril tube gene, MFS is in myofibrin 1, and then theres TGF-beta1 and 2. And it turns ...

We report on a 2-year-old Polish girl with typical manifestations of Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS), a rare genetic condition belonging to the group of Marfan-related disorders. The characteristic LDS symptoms observed in the girl included craniofacial dysmorphism (craniosynostosis, cleft palate, hypertelorism), arachnodactyly, camptodactyly, scoliosis, joint laxity, talipes equinovarus, translucent and hyperelastic skin, and umbilical hernia. Mild dilatation of the ascending aorta and tortuous course of the left internal carotid artery were recognized during her second year of life. Molecular genetic testing revealed a heterozygous missense mutation (c.1582C,T, p.R528C) in the transforming growth factor beta receptor II gene (TGFBR2). This mutation has been previously associated with LDS in 5 unrelated cases, and was never reported in patients with other Marfan-related disorders. Comparison of the phenotypes of our patient and these 5 individuals with c.1582C,T showed that only the hallmark triad ...

Aneurysms of the thoracic aorta (see Figure 1) are not as common as those affecting the abdominal portion, but carry a higher risk of rupture. Both share the same primary cause: atherosclerosis. In the past, ascending aortic aneurysms were typically caused by syphilis, but nowadays hypertension or Marfans syndrome are more likely to be responsible. Symptoms result from the acute painful tear felt as central chest pain, which radiates to the back, and from the compression of surrounding structures: Figure 1A typical aneurysm of the thoracic aorta at surgery.
