Multiple pterygium : Multiple pterygium Dr.V.Ravimohan What is pterygium? : What is pterygium? Pterygia are soft tissue webs across a joint or across the neck When does it happen? : When does it happen? generalised association-Trisomies,Turner’s,Noonan’ specific syndrome- popliteal pterygium antecubital pterygium syndrome multiple pterygium syndrome specific syndrome : specific syndrome popliteal pterygium-popliteal web + facial anomalies antecubital pterygium syndrome-web extending across the cubital fossa + anomalies of the radial head + radio-ulnar joint multiple pterygium syndrome webbing of variable degrees involving the neck, axilla, elbow, knee and digits associated with short stature and orofacial anomalies. multiple pterygium syndromes : multiple pterygium syndromes phenotypically and genetically heterogeneous (autosomal recessive,autosomal dominant or sporadic) lethal and nonlethal (Escobar) types nonlethal multiple pterygium syndrome(Escobar) : nonlethal multiple pterygium syndrome(Escobar) can be caused by mutation in the CHRNG gene, encoding the gamma subunit of the acetylcholine receptor (AChR). Mutations in this gene can also cause the lethal variant of this phenotype Escobar : Escobar Webbing of neck antecubital fossae popliteal fossae with sternal deformity and male hypogonadism may behave sometimes as a dominant, but there clearly appears to be a recessive type Escobar : Escobar multiple joint contractures with crouched stance and cleft palate Males had small penis and scrotum and cryptorchidism females had aplasia of the labia majora and small clitoris. Skeletal anomalies : Skeletal anomalies fusion of cervical vertebrae scoliosis flexion contraction of fingers 'rocker-bottom' feet with vertical talus Clinical features : Clinical features intrauterine death congenital respiratory distress short stature faciocranial dysmorphism ptosis low-set ears Arachnodactyly cryptorchism in males Escobar : Escobar first diagnostic sign is that of reduced fetal movement detected by ultrasound or reported by mothers. At birth, variable joint contractures multiple pterygia facial dysmorphism with long face, high-arched palate, small mouth, and retrognathism. Escobar : Escobar Respiratory distress is a frequent life-threatening complication. Later in life patients frequently are affected by reduced muscular mass but do not show myasthenic symptoms normal electromyelogram (EMG), except for unspecific indication of chronic myopathy. Pathogenesis : Pathogenesis mutations in the gamma, or fetal, subunit of the nicotinergic acetylcholine receptor reduced fetal movements at sensitive times of development CHRNG gene : CHRNG gene encodes the gamma subunit of the AChR expressed before the 33rd week of gestation in humans replaced by the epsilon subunit in the late fetal and perinatal period, thereby forming the adult AChR. Slide 15: AChRs have five subunits. Two a, one ß, and one d subunit are always present. By switching ? to subunits in late fetal development, fetal AChRs are gradually replaced by adult AChRs. Other reasons for reduced fetal movements : Other reasons for reduced fetal movements Oligohydramnion Drugs metabolic conditions neuromuscular disorders including myasthenia gravis popliteal pterygium syndrome : popliteal pterygium syndrome Autosomal dominant with contractures limited to the knee Repercussions that are only functional popliteal pterygium syndrome : popliteal pterygium syndrome least 3 of the following deformities.
