Autosomal visceral heterotaxy-8 is an autosomal recessive developmental disorder characterized by visceral situs inversus associated with complex congenital. MalaCards based summary: Visceral Heterotaxy, also known as heterotaxia, is related to heterotaxy and right atrial isomerism. An important gene associated. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: Heterotaxy, visceral, 5, autosomal: A form of visceral heterotaxy, a complex disorder due to disruption of the normal left-right asymmetry.

In affected members of 9 unrelated families with HTX7, Guimier et al. United States National Library of Medicine. The liver is typically symmetrical across the left-right axis in patients with situs ambiguus, which is abnormal.

Diagnostic methods Diagnosis relies on medical imaging or on the identification of mutations in the ZIC3 gene, in the case of X-linked forms. A year-old woman from an unrelated family with HTX8 carried a homozygous missense mutation CS; The transmission pattern of HTX8 in the families reported by Vetrini et al.

However, the authors are hopeful that finding a link can help inform clinical decision-making, predictive analyses, and future outcomes. CC ]. The mutant mice showed visceral heterotaxy with laterality heart defects commonly associated with heterotaxy.

Abnormal looping of the ventricles contributes to arrhythmia and heart block in fetuses. Heterotaxy, visceral, 2, autosomal.

A human laterality disorder caused by a homozygous deleterious mutation in MMP Congenital Abnormality Abnormality of the digestive system See: Left atrial appendage isomerism, also called left atrial isomerism, is a cardiac development defect in which the heart has 2 bilateral left atria and atrial appendages in the muscle wall.


Abdominal organsincluding the liverstomachintestinal tractand spleen may be randomly arranged throughout the left-right axis of the body. Distribution of these organs largely dictates treatment, clinical outcomes, and further evaluation. OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.

Heterotaxy Heterotaxy ‘heter’ meaning ‘other’ and ‘taxy’ hetterotaxy ‘arrangement’or situs ambiguus, is a developmental condition characterized by randomization of the placement of visceral organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, and stomach.

These features are not associated with any significant clinical complications. Although its cause is poorly understood, situs ambiguus has been linked to family history of malformations [8] [9] and maternal cocaine use, [10] suggesting both genetic and environmental factors play a role. vlsceral

While the OMIM database is open to the public, users seeking information about a personal medical or genetic condition are urged to consult with a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to personal questions.

Zic family member vidceral.

Bi-allelic mutations in PKD1L1 are associated with laterality defects in humans. Features included dextrocardia, transposition of the great arteries, atrial and ventricular defects, abnormal vessel drainage, lung isomerism, inverted liver lobation, and dextrogastria.

A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. Intestinal malrotation is more commonly hetedotaxy in patients with right atrial isomerism than in those with left atrial isomerism. Pkd1l1 rks mutants exhibited gross left-right patterning abnormalities that phenocopied those found in mouse embryos homozygous for a gluto-gly EG mutation in Pkd2.


Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown. TEXT A number sign is used with this entry because of evidence that autosomal visceral heterotaxy-7 HTX7 is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the MMP21 gene on chromosome 10q Thus, Ivemark syndrome corresponds to heterotaxia with asplenia.

In the first family, a boy had dextrocardia, ventricular and atrial septal defects, interrupted inferior vena cava, and interrupted aortic arch. Acute symptoms can be due to both cardiac and non-cardiac defects. Heterotaxia with recurrent respiratory infections are named ciliary dyskninesia see this term.

Birth prevalence and descriptive epidemiology”.


In addition, a series of gastrointestinal tests can be conducted for observation of intestinal malrotation, as well as a scan of the liver and spleen for biliary function. Phenotypic Series Toggle Dropdown. Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal scan can show lateralization abnormality hheterotaxy is systematically performed in case of a positive family history.
