DIFFUSE CEREBRAL AND CEREBELLAR ATROPHY-INTRACTABLE SEIZURES-PROGRESSIVE MICROCEPHALY SYNDROME


Description

Diffuse cerebral and cerebellar atrophy-intractable seizures-progressive microcephaly syndrome is a rare, genetic, central nervous system malformation syndrome characterized by congenital, progressive microcephaly, neonatal to infancy-onset of severe, intractable seizures, and diffuse cerebral cortex and cerebellar vermis atrophy with mild cerebellar hemisphere atrophy, associated with profound global developmental delay. Hypotonia or hypertonia with brisk reflexes, variable dysmorphic facial features, ophthalmological signs (cortical visual impairment, nystagmus, eye deviation) and episodes of sudden extreme agitation caused by severe illness may also be associated.

Most common symptoms of DIFFUSE CEREBRAL AND CEREBELLAR ATROPHY-INTRACTABLE SEIZURES-PROGRESSIVE MICROCEPHALY SYNDROME

  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Microcephaly
  • Low-set ears

MICROCEPHALY-SHORT STATURE-INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY-FACIAL DYSMORPHISM SYNDROME


Description

Microcephaly-short stature-intellectual disability-facial dysmorphism syndrome is a rare genetic malformation syndrome with short stature characterized by postnatal microcephaly, failure to thrive and short stature, global developmental delay and intellectual disability, hypotonia, dysmorphic features (short nose, depressed nasal bridge, low set ears, short neck, clinodactyly and cutaneous syndactyly of T2-3 at birth and broad forehead, midface retrusion, epicanthal folds, laterally sparse eyebrows, short nose, long philtrum, widely spaced teeth, micrognathia and coarsening of facial features later in life). Other associated features include postnatal transient generalized edema, myopia, strabismus, hypothyroidism.
