Wolfram Syndrome 1; Wfs1

Description

Wolfram syndrome-1 is a rare and severe autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disease characterized by diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, diabetes insipidus, and deafness (DIDMOAD). Additional clinical features may include renal abnormalities, ataxia, dementia or mental retardation, and diverse psychiatric illnesses. The minimal diagnostic criteria for Wolfram syndrome are optic atrophy and diabetes mellitus of juvenile onset. Hearing impairment in Wolfram syndrome is typically progressive and mainly affects the higher frequencies, but a small fraction of affected individuals have congenital deafness (summary by Rendtorff et al., 2011).Autosomal dominant mutations in the WFS1 gene have been found to cause low-frequency nonsyndromic deafness (OMIM ) as well as a Wolfram syndrome-like phenotype (OMIM ) in which affected individuals have hearing impairment with diabetes mellitus and/or optic atrophy. Genetic Heterogeneity of Wolfram SyndromeWolfram syndrome-2 (WFS2 ) is caused by mutation in the CISD2 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 4q24.
