Arthrogryposis Larsen syndrome Rapadilino syndrome.

A history of digital anomalies in the father and grandfather led to the diagnosis of Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome. The disorder appears to be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner [ Koenig et al ] and can be caused by biallelic pathogenic variants in KIF7 [ Putoux et al ].

Temtamy and McKusick studied a particularly instructive family in which 10 members of 4 generations in 6 sibships were affected in the pattern of a fully penetrant autosomal dominant trait. Only 10 cephalopollysyndactyly with GCPS fulfilled all clinical criteria, namely preaxial polydactyly, cutaneous syndactyly, widely spaced eyes, and macrocephaly.

For information about clinical trials sponsored by private sources, contact: Postaxial polydactyly type B PAP-B is the presence of a rudimentary digit or nubbin in the same location.

However, most individuals with PHS are mildly affected with polydactyly and asymptomatic bifid epiglottis and hypothalamic hamartoma HH. Hootnick and Holmes reported a father with polysyndactyly and his son with trigonocephaly, polysyndactyly, and agenesis of the corpus callosum McDonald-McGinn et al. Diagnostic methods Clinical diagnosis is challenging because the findings of GCPS are relatively non-specific, and no specific and sensitive clinical criteria have been delineated.


Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome can be the result of an inherited or de novo chromosome rearrangement. Health care resources for this disease Expert centres Diagnostic tests 35 Patient organisations 29 Orphan drug s 0.

Please note that some of these organizations may provide information concerning certain conditions potentially associated with this disorder [e. In an analysis of reported cases, Baccichetti et al.

As for all individuals with malformations, a dysmorphology examination is appropriate to exclude other anomalies. Giemsa-banded karyotypes do not detect all deletions, even those on the order of 1 Mb [unpublished observations].

In a branch of the family, the GCPS phenotype skipped a generation via a normal female carrier without clinical signs, providing evidence that GCPS does not always manifest full penetrance.

If the individual does have developmental delay or intellectual disability, he or she should have either comparative genomic hybridization or SNP-array to detect possible copy number changes in the GLI3 gene.

In most cases, GCPS is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern.

He remarked that in patients with substantial phenotypic overlap, molecular diagnostics are essential to arrive at a correct diagnosis; a mutation in GLI3 denotes GCPS.

GCPS is usually diagnosed at birth based upon a thorough clinical evaluation; identification of characteristic physical findings; and specialized imaging procedures, including X-rays and computed tomography CT scanning.

CC HPO: There is some controversy regarding whether PAP-A is distinct from PHS or is instead cephalopolyxyndactyly mild variant of PHS with mild, subtle, and asymptomatic bifid epiglottis, hypothalamic hamartoma, anal stenosis, and other signs.

The Genetics of Hand Malformations. Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome GCPS is a pleiotropic, multiple congenital anomaly syndrome. In a particularly instructive family in which 9 members of 4 generations could be studied clinically and molecularly, a missense mutation, RW Mutations in the GLI3 gene cause Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome.
