Alport Syndrome, Autosomal Dominant

Description

Alport syndrome classically comprises nephritis, often progressing to renal failure, and sensorineural hearing loss (Alport, 1927). For a general phenotypic description of Alport syndrome, see the X-linked dominant form (OMIM ). Approximately 85% of cases of Alport syndrome are X-linked and about 15% are autosomal recessive (OMIM ); autosomal dominant inheritance is rare (van der Loop et al., 2000).Also see benign familial hematuria (BFH ), a similar but milder disorder also caused by mutation in the COL4A3 gene.An autosomal dominant disorder sharing the clinical features of Alport syndrome but with the addition of macrothrombocytopenia, known as Fechtner syndrome (OMIM ), is caused by mutation in the MYH9 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 22q11.
