Hamartoneoplastic malformation syndrome of uncertain etiology characterized by partial GIGANTISM of the hands and/or feet, asymmetry of the limbs, plantar hyperplasia, hemangiomas (HEMANGIOMA), lipomas (LIPOMA), lymphangiomas (LYMPHANGIOMA), epidermal NEVI; MACROCEPHALY; cranial HYPEROSTOSIS, and long-bone overgrowth. Joseph Merrick, the so-called "elephant man", apparently suffered from Proteus syndrome and not NEUROFIBROMATOSIS, a disorder with similar characteristics.
Congenital or acquired asymmetry of the face.
A disorder characterized by the accumulation of encapsulated or unencapsulated tumor-like fatty tissue resembling LIPOMA.
Increase in the mass of bone per unit volume.
A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that occurs in the intestines of humans and a wide variety of animals, as well as in manure, soil, and polluted waters. Its species are pathogenic, causing urinary tract infections and are also considered secondary invaders, causing septic lesions at other sites of the body.
A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that is frequently isolated from clinical specimens. Its most common site of infection is the urinary tract.
A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that occurs in soil, fecal matter, and sewage. It is an opportunistic pathogen and causes cystitis and pyelonephritis.
A circumscribed stable malformation of the skin and occasionally of the oral mucosa, which is not due to external causes and therefore presumed to be of hereditary origin.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports research into the mapping of the human genome and other organism genomes. The National Center for Human Genome Research was established in 1989 and re-named the National Human Genome Research Institute in 1997.
An analysis comparing the allele frequencies of all available (or a whole GENOME representative set of) polymorphic markers in unrelated patients with a specific symptom or disease condition, and those of healthy controls to identify markers associated with a specific disease or condition.
A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin. Clinical manifestations include hypersensitivity pneumonitis (ALVEOLITIS, EXTRINSIC ALLERGIC); allergic rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL); ASTHMA; infections, skin eruptions, and mucous membrane irritation syndromes. Current usage tends to be less restrictive with regard to the type of building and delineation of complaints. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.
Conditions in which increased pressure within a limited space compromises the BLOOD CIRCULATION and function of tissue within that space. Some of the causes of increased pressure are TRAUMA, tight dressings, HEMORRHAGE, and exercise. Sequelae include nerve compression (NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES); PARALYSIS; and ISCHEMIC CONTRACTURE.

Proteus syndrome and immunodeficiency. (1/31)

A 10 year old boy with Proteus syndrome presented with a pericardial effusion of unknown aetiology. Immunological investigation revealed low serum IgG and IgA, accompanied by low levels of specific antibodies to pneumococcal and haemophilus type B polysaccharides. Circulating lymphocyte surface marker profile revealed T and B cell lymphopenia. This is the first report of hypogammaglobulinaemia occurring in the Proteus syndrome.  (+info)

Germline and germline mosaic PTEN mutations associated with a Proteus-like syndrome of hemihypertrophy, lower limb asymmetry, arteriovenous malformations and lipomatosis. (2/31)

Germline PTEN mutations cause Cowden syndrome (CS) and Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRR), two hamartoma-tumour syndromes, and somatic PTEN alterations have been shown to participate, to a greater or lesser extent, in a wide variety of sporadic neoplasia. PTEN is a tumour suppressor and dual-specificity phosphatase which affects apoptosis via its lipid phosphatase activity in the phosphoinositol-3-kinase and AKT pathway as well as inhibiting cell spreading via the focal adhesion kinase pathway. CS and BRR share some features, such as hamartomas and lipomatosis. To determine whether other syndromes characterized by overgrowth and lipomas are part of the PTEN syndrome spectrum, we ascertained six individuals with overgrowth and lipomas but who did not meet the diagnostic criteria for CS or BRR. Five had Proteus syndrome and one, a Proteus-like syndrome. When germline DNA and DNA from at least one involved tissue per case were examined for PTEN mutations, only the Proteus-like patient was found to harbour a germline R335X mutation. Interestingly, a lipomatous mass, an epidermoid naevus and arteriovenous malformation tissue, all of which were sampled from physically distinct sites, were all found to carry a second hit R130X mutation on the allele opposite the germline R335X. Both mutations have been described in CS and BRR. We postulate that the second hit, R130X, occurred early in embryonic development and may even represent germline mosaicism. Thus, PTEN may be involved in Proteus-like syndrome with its implications for cancer development in the future.  (+info)

Genital tract tumors in Proteus syndrome: report of a case of bilateral paraovarian endometrioid cystic tumors of borderline malignancy and review of the literature. (3/31)

Proteus syndrome is a rare, sporadic disorder that causes postnatal overgrowth of multiple tissues in a mosaic pattern. Characteristic manifestations include: overgrowth and hypertrophy of limbs and digits, connective tissue nevus, epidermal nevus and hyperostoses. Various benign and malignant tumors and hamartomas may complicate the clinical course of patients with the syndrome. Commonly encountered tumors include hemangiomas, lymphangiomas and lipomas. Tumors of the genital tract occur less often. Bilateral ovarian cystadenomas are regarded as having diagnostic value in Proteus syndrome when occurring within the first two decades of life. We describe a 3-year-old girl with Proteus syndrome who developed bilateral paraovarian villoglandular endometrioid cystadenomatous tumors of borderline malignancy (low malignant potential) of the broad ligament. Desmoplastic tumor implants, presumably noninvasive, were present in biopsies from the pelvic floor, cul-de-sac and omentum. This is the first recognized example of a cystic borderline epithelial tumor of the female genital tract and the first paraovarian tumor reported in a patient with Proteus syndrome. Previously reported tumors and cystic lesions involving the female genital tract and the male genital tract in patients with Proteus syndrome are reviewed. We suspect that specific testicular and paratesticular tumors may prove to have the same diagnostic value in Proteus syndrome as do bilateral cystic ovarian and paraovarian tumors.  (+info)

Protean PTEN: form and function. (4/31)

Germline mutations distributed across the PTEN tumor-suppressor gene have been found to result in a wide spectrum of phenotypic features. Originally shown to be a major susceptibility gene for both Cowden syndrome (CS), which is characterized by multiple hamartomas and an increased risk of breast, thyroid, and endometrial cancers, and Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, which is characterized by lipomatosis, macrocephaly, and speckled penis, the PTEN hamartoma tumor syndrome spectrum has broadened to include Proteus syndrome and Proteus-like syndromes. Exon 5, which encodes the core motif, is a hotspot for mutations likely due to the biology of the protein. PTEN is a major lipid 3-phosphatase, which signals down the PI3 kinase/AKT pro-apoptotic pathway. Furthermore, PTEN is a protein phosphatase, with the ability to dephosphorylate both serine and threonine residues. The protein-phosphatase activity has also been shown to regulate various cell-survival pathways, such as the mitogen-activated kinase (MAPK) pathway. Although it is well established that PTEN's lipid-phosphatase activity, via the PI3K/AKT pathway, mediates growth suppression, there is accumulating evidence that the protein-phosphatase/MAPK pathway is equally important in the mediation of growth arrest and other crucial cellular functions.  (+info)

Proteus syndrome: a natural clinical course of Proteus syndrome. (5/31)

A 16-year-old Korean male patient presented with macrodactyly, hemihypertrophy of the face and extremities, plantar cerebriform hyperplasia, a subcutaneous mass of the left chest, macrocephaly and verrucous epidermal nevi. These findings are consistent with Proteus Syndrome. The clinical features, etiology, management, natural course and differential diagnosis of this case are discussed.  (+info)

A 39-bp deletion polymorphism in PTEN in African American individuals: implications for molecular diagnostic testing. (6/31)

Germline mutations in the PTEN/MMAC1/TEP1 tumor suppressor gene cause Cowden syndrome (CS), a hereditary hamartoma-tumor syndrome with an increased risk of breast, thyroid, and endometrial cancers, and seemingly unrelated developmental disorders, such as Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba (BRR) syndrome, Proteus, and Proteus-like syndromes. Data to date suggest that irrespective of the clinical presentation, the identification of a PTEN mutation should trigger medical management which includes cancer surveillance. Clinic-based molecular diagnostic testing for germline PTEN mutations has been available for at least 2 years. This study reports on the finding of a previously unobserved heterozygous alteration (IVS7-15-->53del39) found in an African American individual who had features of CS. Further investigation revealed that 12 of 42 (28.6%) African American controls, but not individuals of Caucasian or Japanese origin, also carried this heterozygous 39-bp deletion in PTEN. Due to its location immediately upstream of the splicing site of exon 8, this polymorphism could be mistaken for a deleterious mutation in the PTEN.  (+info)

Overgrowth syndromes: is dysfunctional PI3-kinase signalling a unifying mechanism? (7/31)

Studies in drosophila and animal models have shown that the phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3-kinase) axis plays a central role in normal development, defining the number and size of cells in tissues. Dysfunction of this pathway leads to growth anomalies and has been established to play a key role in the pathogenesis of Cowden syndrome and tuberous sclerosis. It is probable that dysfunction of this pathway is the basis of other disorders especially those typified by asymmetric overgrowth.  (+info)

Unilateral proteus syndrome. (8/31)

Proteus syndrome is a complex developmental abnormality. It is characterized by both hypertrophic and hypoplastic changes. Deformities have been occasionally found to be localized in one half of the body in head or digit but presence of all signs in one half of the body in a wide spread manner is not reported in the literature. We report the case for its unusual presentation of unilateral localization of signs.  (+info)

Proteus syndrome (PS) is a sporadically occurring hamartomatous disorder associated with irregular asymmetric overgrowth of multiple body tissues and cell lineages. Most malformations in patients with Proteus syndrome have a mesodermal origin.
This weeks strange case in medicine is Proteus Syndrome. Proteus Syndrome results in the overgrowth of skin and irregular bone development that is often followed by the growth of tumors over the body. The condition is extremely rare, with only about 120 people living with the condition.. Proteus Syndrome is described as a progressive condition, meaning that when a child is born with the condition it may not be apparent right away. However, as time moves on deformities begin to become fairly obvious. Although not all cases of Proteus Syndrome are diagnosed, as not all irregular growths are severe.. Unfortunately, skin, bone, and tumor growth can begin at any age. Also, the risk of an early death increase dramatically for those diagnosed with Proteus Syndrome. Many individuals suffering from Proteus Syndrome are more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism due to the malformations of the blood vessels. Furthermore, carrying around all the extra weight, caused by the ...
Proteus syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by disproportionate overgrowth of limbs, multiple hamartomas, and vascular malformations. The cerebriform connective tissue nevi, also called cerebriform plantar hyperplasia, are present in most patients, and is the main characteristic of the syndrome.
Hamartoneoplastic malformation syndrome of uncertain etiology characterized by partial gigantism of the hands and/or feet, asymmetry of the limbs, plantar hyperplasia, hemangiomas, lipomas, lymphangiomas, epidermal nevi, macrocephaly, cranial hyperostoses, and long-bone overgrowth. Joseph Merrick, the so-called elephant man, apparently suffered from Proteus syndrome and not neurofibromatosis, a disorder with similar characteristics.
Proteus syndrome is the overgrowth of the skin, bones and other tissues. The tissues and organs the disease affects grow out of proportion to the rest of the body. The overgrowth usually affects the left and right sides of the body differently, meaning that it is asymmetric. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
Proteus syndrome has also been termed elattoproteus syndrome or the elephant man disease. It is a rare genetic condition in which some parts of the body start to grow too much, in a random manner.
I believe this is known as Proteus syndrome. The following is from a paper I am writing on the cytological findings of a hydrocele fluid from a boy with Proteus syndrome (I must pull my finger out and submit it). As an aside, it is believed that the elephant man suffered from this disorder. Proteus syndrome is a rare disorder and it estimated that there are only several hundred patients affected. It is postulated that the syndrome is caused by a post-zygotic mosaic alteration in a gene that is lethal in its non-mosaic state (4). Apart from connective tissue and epidermal nevi, disproportionate overgrowth of some bones and other malformations, bilateral ovarian cystadenomas are regarded as having diagnostic value in Proteus syndrome when occurring in the first two decades of life. Papillary lesions, resembling common epithelial ovarian tumours are rare in the testis with only a handful being described in pre-pubertal males (4). It has been suggested that these papillary lesions, so called ...
HealthTap: Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Sinha on is there any treatments to heal proteus syndrome: Compartment syndrome of the quads and calfs are the most common muscles affected. Releasing the pressure quickly saves muscle death and can prevent kidney damage. The fascia surrounding the swollenmuscle is not elastic and needs to be cut as soon as possible. Pain and numbness are a bad sign but there are rare instances where very close observation may avoid surgery.

Isolated hemihyperplasia is an abnormality of cell proliferation leading to asymmetric overgrowth of one or more regions of the body. The term hemihyperplasia has replaced the term hemihypertrophy to describe accurately the increase in cell number found in these patients. The incidence of isolated hemihyperplasia is estimated to be 1 in 86,000. Idiopathic hemihypertrophy is associated with increased risk of embryonal cancers in childhood, particularly Wilms tumor.. Hoyme et al. (1998) provided an anatomic classification of hemihyperplasia: complex hemihyperplasia is involvement of half of the body, including at least 1 arm and 1 leg; affected parts may be contralateral or ipsilateral. Simple hemihyperplasia is involvement of a single limb. See also facial hemihyperplasia.. Although isolated hemihyperplasia is a distinct clinical entity, it can also occur as a feature of overgrowth syndromes, including Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, neurofibromatosis, Proteus syndrome, and ...
The story of Joseph Carey Merrick began in 1862, when he was born to Mary Jane and Joseph Merrick of Leicester, but the story of the Elephant Man did not start until several years later. It was when he was a toddler that tumours first appeared on Merricks body. They continued to grow and multiply throughout his short life, the result of what is now generally understood to be Proteus Syndrome. Without modern surgical treatment, the condition eventually became so severe that it made a normal life impossible. As the autobiographical pamphlet above states, Merrick found a means of supporting himself by joining travelling freak shows, displaying his deformity to the public under the stage name of The Elephant Man.. While touring, Merrick composed - albeit possibly with the help of an external writer - the above statement as part of a pamphlet to be distributed to crowds at each exhibition. He later attained fame of a different sort through his relationship with Dr. Frederick Treves, whose reports ...

The one departure from the two main stereotypes that Ive come across is in the 1980 David Lynch film The Elephant Man. This is an adaptation of the true-life story of Joseph Merrick, a man who lived in Victorian London who was grossly disfigured by Proteus Syndrome. The original 1942 book written about him by Ashley Montagu is subtitled: A Study in Human Dignity, which is ironic considering how the film dealt with the subject of Hospital Porters. The film considerably deviates from historical facts to add energy to the plot. One of those deviations has Merrick kidnapped, from the hospital where he is being treated, by an unscrupulous freak-show owner and the cruel man who helps to organize the abduction is one of the hospitals porters, played by Michael Elphick. So the score so far for Hospital Porter portrayals is: Conformist Stereotype 1- Evil Greedy Bastard 1! Will things get any better ...
Proteus Syndrome is a rare congenital disease, which is characterized by skin overgrowth and atypical bone growth. The most affected bones are limbs, skull.
Noonan Syndrome with Multiple Lentigines (NSML, formerly LEOPARD syndrome) is an autosomal dominant RASopathy disorder manifesting in congenital heart disease. Most cases of NSML are caused by catalytically inactivating mutations in the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP), non-receptor type 11 (PTPN11), encoding the SH2 domain-containing PTP-2 (SHP2) protein. We previously generated knock-in mice harboring the PTPN11 mutation Y279C, one of the most common NSML alleles; these now-termed SHP2Y279C/+ mice recapitulate the human disorder and develop hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) by 12 weeks of age. Functionally, heart and/or cardiomyocyte lysates from SHP2Y279C/+ mice exhibit increased basal and agonist-induced AKT and mTOR activities. Here, we sought to determine whether we could reverse the hypertrophy in SHP2Y279C/+ mice using ARQ 092, an oral and selective allosteric AKT inhibitor currently in clinical trials for patients with PI3K/AKT-driven tumors or Proteus syndrome. We obtained ...
The serine-threonine protein kinase encoded by the AKT1 gene is catalytically inactive in serum-starved primary and immortalized fibroblasts. AKT1 and the related AKT2 are activated by platelet-derived growth factor. The activation is rapid and specific, and it is abrogated by mutations in the pleckstrin homology domain of AKT1. It was shown that the activation occurs through phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. In the developing nervous system AKT is a critical mediator of growth factor-induced neuronal survival. Survival factors can suppress apoptosis in a transcription-independent manner by activating the serine/threonine kinase AKT1, which then phosphorylates and inactivates components of the apoptotic machinery. Mutations in this gene have been associated with the Proteus syndrome. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.

David Lynchs 1980 film The Elephant Man is one of the most revered and popular classics of the 80s. Many of its elements, like the famous I am not an animal! speech are still known to people who have never even heard of The Elephant Man, let alone actually sat down and watched it. So I guess its inevitable then that a Hollywood studio is going to remake it. Or - to put it more accurately, Silver Nitrate Entertainment has purchased the rights to a book on the life of severely disfigured Joseph Merrick, the subject of the original movie. But producer Ash Shah is said to be basically approaching this as a remake anyway, something he doesnt deny in this recent statement ...

The discovery, which has implications for potential drug therapies and even cancer, appears in the July 27, 2011, early online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.. David Bick, MD, professor of pediatrics at the Medical College and medical director of genetics at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin, is one of the authors of the study, which was led by researchers at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).. Proteus syndrome gained wide public attention in 1980, through the movie The Elephant Man, about a 19th century Londoner whom experts believe may have suffered from the disease.. Researchers discovered a single-letter misspelling in the DNA of a gene called AKT1 that activates the sporadic tissue growth seen in patients with Proteus syndrome. There are fewer than 500 people with the disease in the developed world, where it can be tracked.. Affected patients appear normal at birth, but symptoms occur in the first two ...
Overgrowth syndromes in children constitute a group of rare disorders that are typical of tissue hypertrophy. Individual overgrowth syndromes have been shown to overlap with regard to clinical and radiologic features. The details of the genetic bases of these syndromes are unfolding. Any of the three embryonic tissue layers may be involved.The syndromes may manifest in localized or generalized tissue overgrowth. Latitudinal and longitudinal growth may be affected. Nevertheless, the musculoskeletal features are central to the diagnosis of some syndromes such as Proteus syndrome. The time of presentation of children with overgrowth syndromes is an important contributor to the differential diagnosis. Children with some overgrowth syndromes such as Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome can be readily detectable at birth. In contrast other overgrowth syndromes such as Proteus syndrome usually present in the postnatal period characteristically between the 2nd and 3rd year of life. In general, children with ...
CLOVES syndrome is an extremely rare overgrowth syndrome as only 50 people have it in the world, with complex vascular anomalies. CLOVES syndrome affects people with various symptoms, ranging from mild fatty soft-tissue tumors to vascular malformations encompassing the spine or internal organs. CLOVES syndrome is closely linked to other overgrowth disorders like proteus syndrome, Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome, Sturge-Weber syndrome, and hemihypertrophy, to name a few. It can also cause fat to move to the back, and many cases undescended testicles. CLOVES is an acronym for: C is for congenital. L is for lipomatous, which means pertaining to or resembling a benign tumor made up of mature fat cells. Most CLOVES patients present with a soft fatty mass at birth, often visible on one or both sides of the back, legs and/or abdomen. O is for overgrowth, because there is an abnormal increase in the size of the body or a body part that is often noted at birth. Patients with CLOVES may have affected areas ...

NewEnglandBob. About 2 years ago I came down with something similar. It started as an ear infection, 2 days later the whole right side of my face had swollen so much that I looked like the elephant man. By day 3 I had puss just coming from the side of my cheek, but no sores. It was some of the worse pain I have ever had and it put me in the hospital for over a week. Anyway docs didnt have a clue what it was, thats even after sending specimens off to labs. They said I was very close to death and none of the antibiotics appeared to be doing much good. around day 5 I started getting better, the doctors said that it appeared as if my own immune system did most of the work not the antibiotics. Even though they couldnt get a conclusive results from the labs, they believed it was an ear infection the moved into the sub-dermal tissue and behaved kinda like a staff infection. They put me on a Z pack (zithromax?) first for the ear infection and it did absolutely nothing. I guess my point is, I think ...
Hmmm. Maybe I shouldnt review stuff that I have so little context from which to draw insight but what the fuck, Ill go with it. Its quite repetitive but not entirely unpleasant. The song starts with some sampled dialogue from what I would guess is a horror movie of some sort and soon thereafter starts with the incessant beat that we hear throughout almost the entire song. Much of the song is just that repetitive beat with some phased electronic effects over top of it. Around the 1:30 mark there is a hint that the song might start to get more rhythmically interesting but instead their is an abrupt break from the beat to give us . . . well, Im not sure if the voice reminds me more of the Elephant Man or the deformed dude from the Goonies but hes spouting off something nonsensical that adds nothing to the song for me.

I saw this just this afternoon actually, and you pretty much nailed it Adam. It really is just a bunch of CGI nonsense, and for the life of me i cant figure out what Eddie Redmayne was doing.

Tatum is playing in a very serious movie, Kunis is playing in a weird rom-com and Redmayne is in a silly 80s movie. Its really all over the place. But the tonal issues stems from every part of the film making, in particular because nothing ever seems to be that dangerous because it is exclusively CGI. Still, I didnt really hate it, btu I really didnt like it. I think the character that most sums up my feelings about this movie is the crazy Elephant man ship driver guy. The second I saw that guy I just burst out laughing, and if Im not mistaken, we first see him in a very intense, pivotal moment of the movie, ...
