Klippel-feil Syndrome 1, Autosomal Dominant; Kfs1

Description

Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) is a congenital anomaly characterized by a defect in the formation or segmentation of the cervical vertebrae, resulting in a fused appearance. The clinical triad consists of short neck, low posterior hairline, and limited neck movement, although less than 50% of patients demonstrate all 3 clinical features (Tracy et al., 2004). Genetic Heterogeneity of Klippel-Feil SyndromeAdditional forms of KFS include autosomal recessive KFS2 (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the MEOX1 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 17q21, autosomal dominant KFS3 (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the GDF3 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 12p13, and autosomal recessive KFS4 (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the MYO18B gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 22q12.See also MURCS association (OMIM ), in which Klippel-Feil anomaly is associated with urogenital anomalies.
