neural crest syndrome

neu·ral crest syn·drome

syndrome consisting of loss of pain sensibility, autonomic dysfunction, pupillary abnormalities, neurogenic anhidrosis, vasomotor instability, aplasia of dental enamel, meningeal thickening, hyperflexion, and a degree of albinism; may reflect developmental abnormalities of the neural crest.
Neurology
(1) A condition characterised by congenital analgesia with neurogenic anhidrosis, loss of deep and superficial pain sensation, dental dysplasia, meningeal thickening with cystic degeneration, hyperreflexia, mild mental retardation
Lab Abnormal HVA and VMA assays
(2) A rare idiopathic neurologic disorder of insidious onset, characterised primarily by sensorineural deafness and progressive paralysis of the muscles of the face, neck, shoulders and limbs that often ends in respiratory failure
Ophthalmology Restriction or loss of ability to elevate the eye in adduction, often associated with down-turning of the affected eye, a compensatory tilt of the head associated with congenital fibrosis and shortening of the anterior sheath of the superior oblique tendon of the trochlear muscle
Aetiology Idiopathic or associated with inflammation, possibly related to forceps delivery
Treatment Surgical
