  • Beckwith wiedemann syndrome

    Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is a rare genetic overgrowth disorder. It is characterized by a wide spectrum of symptoms and physical findings that vary in range and severity from case to case. However, in many individuals, associated features include above-average birth and weight and increased growth after birth (postnatally), an usually large tongue (macroglossia), enlargement of certain internal organs (visceromegaly), and protrusion of  Read More

  • Chiari's disease

    Budd-Chiari syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by narrowing and obstruction (occlusion) of the veins of the liver (hepatic veins). Symptoms associated with Budd Chiari syndrome include pain in the upper right part of the abdomen, an abnormally large liver (hepatomegaly), and/or accumulation of fluid in the space (peritoneal cavity) between the two layers of the membrane that lines the stomach (ascites). Additional findings that may be a  Read More

  • Cutaneous malignant melanoma, hereditary

    Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma, hereditary, is also named dysplastic nevus syndrome. It is atypical mole syndrome. It is a skin disorder. There appears to be the presence of mole-like tumors on the skin, near about more than 100 moles over the body, which are atypical in size and structure. There can be any size, color or location of the moles. The normal moles are of the size of 5mm or more in diameter, but if ther  Read More

  • Holmes-adie syndrome

    Adie syndrome, also known as Holmes-Adie syndrome, is a rare genetic condition that affects the eye's pupil. Most patients have dilated pupils, which are bigger than normal and slow to respond to bright light. Tendon reflexes can be absent or weak, which is another symptom of this condition. The origin of Adie syndrome is typically unclear (idiopathic), however, it can also be brought on by other disorders such trauma, surgery  Read More

  • Hydranencephaly

    Hydranencephaly is a central nervous system disorder characterized by an enlarged head and neurological deficits. The exact cause of Hydranencephaly is not known. This extremely rare form of Hydrocephalus involves the absence of portions of the brain. Results of neurologic examination in newborns may be normal or abnormal. The head usually appears enlarged at birth. Vision impairment, lack of growth and intellectual deficits are symptomatic of  Read More

  • Hydrocephalus

    The signs and symptoms of hydrocephalus vary somewhat by age of onset. Infants Common signs and symptoms of hydrocephalus in infants include: Changes in the head An unusually large head A rapid increase in the size of the head A bulging or tense soft spot (fontanel) on the top of the head Physical signs and symptoms Vomiting Sleepiness  Read More

  • Infantile gaucher disease

    Gaucher disease is a rare, inherited metabolic disorder in which deficiency of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase results in the accumulation of harmful quantities of certain fats (lipids), specifically the glycolipid glucocerebroside, throughout the body especially within the bone marrow, spleen and liver. The symptoms and physical findings associated with Gaucher disease vary greatly from case to case. Some individuals will develop few or no symp  Read More

  • Kennedy-stefanis disease

    Kennedy disease is a rare, X-linked slowly progressive neuro-muscular disorder. Kennedy disease is typically an adult-onset disease, where symptoms occur mainly between the ages of 20 and 50. The disease is characterized by symptoms such as muscle weakness and cramps in the arms, legs, and facial area, enlarged breasts, and difficulty with speaking and swallowing (dysphagia). Kennedy disease affects fewer than 1 in 150,000 males and does not t  Read More

  • Lipidosis sphingomyelin

    Niemann-Pick disease (NPD) is a group of rare inherited disorders of fat metabolism. At least five types of Niemann-Pick disease have been identified (NPD types A, B, C, D, and E). Symptoms of types A and B occur as a result of a deficiency of the enzyme acid sphingomyelinase (ASM), which is needed to break down sphingomyelin, a fatty substance found mostly in the brain and nervous system. This deficiency results in abnormal accumulation of ex  Read More

  • Lipoprotein lipase deficiency

    Familial lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency is a rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase. The deficiency of this enzyme prevents affected individuals from properly digesting certain fats and results in a massive accumulation of fatty droplets called chylomicrons in the circulation (chylomicronemia) and consequently also an increase of the plasma concentration of fatty substances called tr  Read More

  • Mps disorder iii

    Mucopolysaccharidosis Disorders are a group of rare genetic conditions caused due to deficiency of one of the lysosomal enzymes. MPS Type-III is one of seven Mucopolysaccharidosis Disorders. It is a result of an inborn metabolism error transmitted as an autosomal recessive genetic condition. An abnormal quantity of a certain chemically complex molecule excreted in the urine is one of the most prevalent symptoms of MPS disorder III  Read More

  • Splenomegaly with rheumatoid arthritis

    Felty syndrome is usually described as associated with or a complication of rheumatoid arthritis. This disorder is generally defined by the presence of three conditions: rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an enlarged spleen (spenomelgaly) and a low white blood cell count (neutropenia). The presence of RA gives rise to painful, stiff and swollen joints. A low white blood cell count, especially when accompanied by an abnormally large spleen, leads to a  Read More

  • Systemic mastocytosis

    Systemic mastocytosis (mas-to-sy-TOE-sis) is an uncommon condition in which too many mast cells accumulate in the body. Mast cells are a kind of white blood cell. Mast cells can be found in connective tissues all over your body. Mast cells aid in the efficient functioning of your immune system and, in most cases, help shield you from disease. Excess mast cells accumulate in your skin, bone marrow, digestive tract,  Read More

  • Takatsuki syndrome

    POEMS syndrome is an extremely rare multisystem disorder. POEMS is an acronym that stands for (P)olyneuropathy, disease affecting many nerves; (O)rganomegaly, abnormal enlargement of an organ; (E)ndocrinopathy, disease affecting certain hormone-producing glands that help to regulate sexual function, and certain metabolic functions; (M)onoclonal gammopathy or M proteins; and (S)kin abnormalities. Common symptoms include progressive weakness of  Read More

  • Weaver-smith syndrome

    A hereditary disorder called weaver-smith syndrome promotes rapid growth. Typically, symptoms in children begin before birth (prenatal onset). The main sign of the condition is rapid growth and bone maturation (maturation), which causes affected people to be taller than average. Other symptoms include intellectual impairment, tight limb muscles with poor coordination, and lax muscles in the core (hypotonia). Face and foot phys  Read More
