    Patients can have chronic meningitis (inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain) resulting in headache, blindness, hearing loss, or other neurologic problems.[] Children with CINCA may have growth disturbances during the course of the disease.[] Children with CINCA can also have problems with their bone growth, and also have the rash and fever seen in the other two conditions.[]

  • Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    Both patients had normal gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase levels, but showed severe pruritus with sleep disturbance, cholestasis, jaundice and growth failure.[] At follow-up, biochemical parameters improved significantly, growth was regained, relief in pruritus, sleeping pattern was normalized.[] RESULTS: All four patients were presented with jaundice, pruritus, hepatomegaly, sleep disturbance. They fulfilled the criteria for PFIC. The surgery was uneventful.[]

  • Microtia

    problems.[] Psychologically, the child is rarely disturbed with the ear prior to age 7. • Surgery should be postponed until rib growth affords necessary cartilage volume to permit fashioning[] When a patient has microtia, and one notes such a tissue growth on the eye, then one should investigate for abnormalities of the spine in the neck as well.[]

  • Chronic Otitis Media

    Chronic otitis media can seriously affect quality of life progressively and in long-term, and it remains the major source of hearing problems in the developing world.[] In the worst case, the enlarging cholesteatoma (a growth of keratinizing squamous epithelium) "eats" the bony boundary of the cranial fossa, leading to meningitis, encephalitis[] A chronic ear infection can cause severe hearing problems.

The growth plate is not as thick as normal but has a greater circumference.[] Researchers believe that these mutations cause the protein to be overly active, which interferes with skeletal development and leads to the disturbances in bone growth seen[]

  • Acoustic Neuroma
