  • Coats Plus Syndrome

    hair, and dysplastic nails without cyst formation.[] Selig S, Rechavi G, Somech R Citation: J Exp Med. 2016;[Epub ahead of print] doi:10.1084/jem.20151618 Abstract: The analysis of individuals with telomere defects may shed light[] Coats disease affects the retina, which is the tissue at the back of the eye that detects light and color.[]

  • Rothmund Thomson Syndrome

    It is primarily a clinical diagnosis with manifestations that include poikiloderma, short stature, sparse hair, juvenile cataracts, small hands and feet, bone defects, photosensitivity[] Our findings suggest a role for RECQL4 in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks by homologous recombination and shed new light onto RECQL4's function in human cells.[] The Rothmund-Thomson syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by poikiloderma, juvenile cataracts, bone abnormalities, short stature, sparse hair, hypogonadism, defective[]

  • Cartilage Hair Hypoplasia

    Cartilage-hair hypoplasia (CHH) is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by short-limbed dwarfism, sparse hair, and immune deficiency.[] […] conditions and between chemotherapy cytotoxicity and aggravation of the immune system and associated hematopoietic dysfunction, considering the role of all these components in light[] Skin pigmentation tends to be light, and hair is thin, sparse and also light-colored, but there is considerable variation in all clinical manifestations.[]

  • Loose Anagen Syndrome

    The children studied had sparse hair that did not grow long and that pulled easily from the scalp.[] Light microscopic examination was consistent with LAS. A biopsy was performed, which showed features of trichotillomania.[] Other risk factors include Caucasian background and light colored hair, especially blonde and light brown.[]

  • Ectodermal Dysplasia

    PURPOSE: Anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia with immunodeficiency (EDA-ID) is characterized by hypohidrosis, dental abnormalities, sparse hair, and immunodeficiency.[] We report a multiplex nonconsanguineous family of Ashkenazi-Jewish descent, in which the index patient presented with a persistent scalp skin lesion, dystrophic nails and light[] This is the second of a two-part study, the first of which used light microscopy as the modality and was previously published.[]

  • Monilethrix

    Localized autosomal recessive hypotrichosis (LAH) is a recently defined disorder characterized by fragile, short, sparse hairs on the scalp, trunk, and extremities.[] RESULTS: Light microscopic examination showed a regular alternate enlargement and narrow area.[] People with monilethrix also have sparse hair growth (hypotrichosis) and short, brittle hair that breaks easily.[]

  • Hidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia

    Sparse scalp hair and dysplastic nails are seen early in life.[] Hypoplasia of the pilosebaceous units was found on light microscopy in one subject.[] --Dry, wiry and brittle --Slow growing --Light in color --Progressive alopecia of the scalp hair --Sparse eyebrows and eyelashes --Sparse body hair including secondary sexual[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    We report a male patient with retinitis pigmentosa, growth failure, long eyelashes, and sparse hair, which are typical signs of Oliver-McFarlane syndrome.[] Here, we show that expression of archaebacterial halorhodopsin in light-insensitive cones can substitute for the native phototransduction cascade and restore light sensitivity[] Light perception and temporal resolution with the implant ON were achieved in all participants.[]

  • Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome

    Extraoral examination revealed a brachycephalic head, proportionate short stature, sparse hair, and atrophic skin.[] A 7.5-mm internal diameter tracheal tube was mounted on a lighted stylet with its inner rigid stylet removed.[] Hallermann-Streiff syndrome: a rare congenital condition characterized by abnormalities of the skull and bones of the face; characteristic facial features; sparse hair; degenerative[]

  • Costello Syndrome

    […] less coarse facial features and slow growing, sparse hair with abnormal texture, the latter resembling the pattern observed in Noonan syndrome-like disorder with loose anagen[] His clinical findings were sparse, thin, and light-colored hair, bilateral ptosis, low-set ears, depressed nasal bridge, bulbous nose, short neck, loose pigmented skin with[] Abstract This study aimed to assess changes in the posterior cranial fossa (PCF) to shed light on the mechanism of cerebellar herniation in children with Costello syndrome[]
