Klippel-feil Syndrome 4, Autosomal Recessive, With Nemaline Myopathy And Facial Dysmorphism; Kfs4

Description

Klippel-Feil syndrome-4 with nemaline myopathy and facial dysmorphism is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized mainly by severe hypotonia apparent from infancy. Klippel-Feil anomaly is primarily defined by fusion of the cervical spine, with associated low posterior hairline and limited neck mobility being observed in about half of patients (summary by Alazami et al., 2015).For a general description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Klippel-Feil syndrome, see KFS1 (OMIM ).
