EDNRB and EDN3 mutations are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner in most families but are semi-dominant in some with the index case usually carrying bi-allelic mutations, while heterozygous waradenburg relatives present with isolated or milder signs of the disease.

Waardenburg syndrome is a rare genetic disorder most often characterized by varying degrees of deafnessminor defects in structures arising from the neural crestand pigmentation changes. For questions regarding permissions or whether a specified use is allowed, contact: Because it is likely that testing methodology and our understanding of genes, allelic variants, and diseases ed improve in the future, consideration should be enfetmedad to banking DNA of affected individuals.

Waardenburg syndrome has also been associated with a variety of other congenital disorderssuch as intestinal and spinal defects, elevation of the scapula and cleft lip and palate. Absent pigmentation of the chest, abdomen, and limbs is also common.

Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work.

They excluded a sizable region of 12q as the site of this gene. In evaluating an individual with suspected WS1 without a white forelock, the individual should be asked whether the hair has been dyed. PCWH occurs in the neonatal and infancy period, and includes features of WSS sensorineural hearing loss, iris heterochromia, skin hypopigmentation associated with Hirschsprung disease and neurological features neonatal hypotonia, intellectual disability of variable severity, nystagmus, progressive spasticity, ataxia and epilepsy.
