Meckel Syndrome, Type 8; Mks8

Description

Meckel-Gruber syndrome is a severe autosomal recessive ciliopathy classically defined by the triad of encephalocele, polydactyly, and renal and biliary ductal dysplasia. Clinical heterogeneity exists even within families (summary by Shaheen et al., 2011).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Meckel syndrome, see MKS1 (OMIM ).
