  • Patients with hirsutism exhibit patterns of adult male hair growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • From early adolescence, patients with this condition gradually (and much of the time 'silently')[vague] develop hundreds to thousands of colorectal polyps (and sometimes polyps elsewhere)-small abnormalities at the surface of the intestinal tract, especially in the large intestine including the colon or rectum. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Because of their appearance and formation of web-like patterns they are also known as spider veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is sometimes part of known genetic syndromes such as triple X-Y (XXXY), Apert's, William's, or Holt-Oram. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • There are many other associated conditions and usually these are not associated with cancer . (healthtap.com)
  • This condition is usually accompanied by gingival hyperplasia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Individuals at risk (due to family links or genetic testing) are usually offered routine monitoring of the intestinal tract every 1 - 5 years for life, from early adulthood, to detect the slow-forming polyps and act if found, before they can pose a threat. (wikipedia.org)
  • person
  • The first thing that is apparent on looking at a person affected by the condition is the presence of anti-mongoloid palpebral fissures and the partially absent eyelids. (healthsparks.org)
  • The condition is slowly degenerative, but the rate of progression and degree of visual loss varies from person to person and even among affected members of the same family. (retina-international.org)
  • developmental
  • To examine this possible genetic factor, 689 randomly selected students were administered a survey in which seventeen developmental prosopagnosics were quantifiably identified. (wikipedia.org)
