Related Disorders Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome.

A history of digital anomalies in the father and grandfather led to the diagnosis of Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome. ACLS is typically inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. A markedly broad hallux visible increase in width of the hallux without an increase in the dorso-ventral dimension. The phenotype shows variable expressivity and can also include craniosynostosis. Two individuals with a severe GCPS phenotype that overlaps with acrocallosal syndrome see Figure 1 have been found to have a pathogenic missense variant in GLI3 [ Elson et alSpeksnijder et al ].


The first is the presence of developmental delay or intellectual disability in the proband. Pectus excavatum Pectus carinatum.

Spectrum of the acrocallosal syndrome. The mutation was demonstrated to result in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay.

Because that dyad of anomalies is nonspecific, the term should not be used as a synonym for GCPS [ Gorlin et al ]. Testing Strategy Confirmation of the diagnosis in a proband.

The human gene is similar to the mouse paralog Gli3 and the vertebrate GLI gene family is homologous to the Drosophila melanogaster gene cubitus interruptus ci. Gorlin RJ, et al. syndromw

Individuals with GCPS as the result of a GLI3 pathogenic variant may have an affected parent or may have the disorder as the result of a de novo pathogenic variant.

If the patient has significant developmental delay or intellectual disability, CGH analysis should be done first, cephaopolysyndactyly by sequence analysis of GLI3and then Giemsa-banded karyotyping if no GLI3 pathogenic variant has been identified by the other two methods.

This is difficult to assess when diagnosing a proband. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships.


MedGen Related information in MedGen. The child also had speech delay. Penetrance One case of apparent non- penetrance has been reported [ Debeer et al ].
