Shprintzen-Goldberg Syndrome has signs and symptoms similar to those of Marfan syndrome and another genetic condition called Loeys-Dietz Syndrome.
It incorporates other entities, such as familial high density lipoprotein deficiency syndromes, Sanjad-Sakati syndrome/Kenny-Caffey syndrome type 1, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, immune recovery uveitis, ectrodactyl-ectodermal dysplasia, trichothiodystrophy, PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog) hamartoma tumor syndrome, Susac's syndrome, autosomal dominant occult macular dystrophy, Tolosa-Hunt syndrome, KEttner tumor, caliber persistent artery, solitary circumscribed retina astrocytic proliferation, progressive transformation of germinal centers, and others.
El paciente no cumple con el fenotipo clasico de los sindromes Shprintzen Goldberg (SSG), Loeys-Dietz (SLD), Ehrles-Danlos IV, ni de otras entidades menos comunes que hacen parte de los diagnosticos diferenciales para tener en cuenta para SM (tabla 3).
It was found that mutations in the genes that lead to abnormal TGF-beta signaling are also keys to Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, genetic conditions marked by blood vessel laxity and dangerous stretching of the aorta, the body's largest blood vessel.
We hypothesise that the 18th dynasty royal family of the new Egyptian kingdom might have suffered from Loeys-Dietz syndrome, which might solve the medical mystery of the 18th dynasty.
Griffith's favorite charitable initiative is a bowling fundraiser for the Baltimore-based Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation (LDSF), which supports research for a cure of the syndrome, a rare connective tissue disease.
The known risk factors include the following genetically-based conditions: bicuspid aortic valve families, familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and Turners syndrome.
30,34,37,39,40) Furthermore, aortic aneurysms may be associated with a number of heritable conditions including a bicuspid aortic valve, Marfan syndrome (MFS), Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and familial thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (FTAADs) (Table 4).
Additional diagnostic considerations and testing are required for individuals who satisfy the criteria for Marfan syndrome, but also show unexpected findings suggestive of conditions with overlapping symptoms, such as Sphrintzen-Goldberg syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, and the vascular form of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
Another arm of their studies involves the creation of disease-specific stem cell lines for Marfan Syndrome and Loeys-Dietz Syndrome, which affect both bone and cardiovascular development in those with the diseases.
INTRODUCTION: Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an autosomally inherited genetic disorder that affects the connective tissues of the body.
