multiple pterygium syndrome

multiple pterygium syndrome
2. an autosomal recessive syndrome caused by mutations in the CHRNG gene (locus: 2q33-q34), which encodes an acetylcholine receptor subunit. It is characterized by pterygia of the neck, axillae, and popliteal, antecubital, and intercrural areas, accompanied by hypertelorism, cleft palate, micrognathia, ptosis of eyelids, and short stature. Skeletal abnormalities include camptodactyly, syndactyly, equinovarus, and rocker-bottom feet, as well as vertebral fusion and rib anomalies. Cryptorchidism is present in males and labia majora are absent in females. Called also Escobar s. and pterygium s. Cf. lethal multiple pterygium s. an autosomal dominant syndrome that in its most severe forms resembles the recessive disorder; milder cases may present with contractures of the extremities and ptosis. Called also distal arthrogryposis type 8.
