Hereditary Sensory And Autonomic Neuropathy Type 6

Description

Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type VI is a severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by neonatal hypotonia, respiratory and feeding difficulties, lack of psychomotor development, and autonomic abnormalities including labile cardiovascular function, lack of corneal reflexes leading to corneal scarring, areflexia, and absent axonal flare response after intradermal histamine injection (summary by Edvardson et al., 2012).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, see HSAN1 (OMIM ).
