Beckwith-wiedemann Syndrome; Bws

Description

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is a pediatric overgrowth disorder involving a predisposition to tumor development. The clinical presentation is highly variable; some cases lack the hallmark features of exomphalos, macroglossia, and gigantism as originally described by Beckwith (1969) and Wiedemann (1969) (summary by Weksberg et al., 2010).Mussa et al. (2016) provided a review of Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, including the wide spectrum of phenotypic manifestations, delineation of the frequencies of manifestations according to genotype, and discussion of the molecular and epigenetic defects that underlie the disorder.
