NEPHRONOPHTHISIS 9; NPHP9


Description

Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is an autosomal recessive kidney disease that leads to kidney cyst formation and progressive renal failure. NPHP is the most frequent genetic cause of end-stage renal failure in the first 3 decades of life (summary by Otto et al., 2008).For a general description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of NPHP, see NPHP1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of NEPHRONOPHTHISIS 9; NPHP9

  • Renal insufficiency
  • Abnormality of the kidney
  • Stage 5 chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Nephronophthisis

RENAL-HEPATIC-PANCREATIC DYSPLASIA 2; RHPD2


Description

RHPD2 is an autosomal recessive multisystemic disorder with severe abnormalities apparent in utero and often resulting in fetal death or death in infancy. The main organs affected include the kidney, liver, and pancreas, although other abnormalities, including cardiac, skeletal, and lung defects, may also be present. Affected individuals often have situs inversus. The disorder results from a defect in ciliogenesis and ciliary function, as well as in cell proliferation and epithelial morphogenesis; thus, the clinical manifestations are highly variable (summary by Grampa et al., 2016).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of renal-hepatic-pancreatic dysplasia, see RHPD1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of RENAL-HEPATIC-PANCREATIC DYSPLASIA 2; RHPD2

  • Hepatomegaly
  • Talipes equinovarus
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Pulmonic stenosis
  • Narrow chest

RENAL-HEPATIC-PANCREATIC DYSPLASIA


Alternate names

RENAL-HEPATIC-PANCREATIC DYSPLASIA Is also known as renohepaticopancreatic dysplasia, ivemark ii syndrome

Description

Renal-hepatic-pancreatic dysplasia is a rare, genetic, developmental defect during embryogenesis syndrome characterized by the triad of pancreatic fibrosis (and cysts, with a reduction of parenchymal tissue), renal dysplasia (with peripheral cortical cysts, primitive collecting ducts, glomerular cysts and metaplastic cartilage) and hepatic dysgenesis (enlarged portal areas containing numerous elongated binary profiles with a tendancy to perilobular fibrosis). Situs abnormalities, skeletal anomalies and anencephaly have also been associated. Patients that survive the neonatal period present renal insufficiency, chronic jaundice and insulin-dependent diabetes.
