Frasier syndrome

Frasier syndrome

A slowly progressing autosomal dominant nephropathy (OMIM:136680) characterised by progressive renal failure in adolescence or early adulthood due to glomerulosclerosis and male pseudohermaphroditism (overlaps with Denys-Drash syndrome, without Wilms tumor).

Molecular pathology
Defects of WTI, which encodes a transcription factor that plays an essential role in the normal development of the urogenital system, cause Frasier syndrome.

Selected genetic conditions that in our practice are the most common scenarios for prophylactic bilateral gonadectomy in prevention of the development of malignant germ cell tumors include Turner (subset +Y), Swyer, and Frasier syndromes. Turner syndrome affects approximately 1 in every 2000 to 5000 live-born females, of which about 55% have a nonmosaic 45,X0 karyotype; 40% have a mosaic karyotype of various complexity; and 5% have a structural abnormality of the sex chromosome.
