Cockayne Syndrome


  • Presented alphabetically for quick reference, the book covers over 1600 common and uncommon syndromes, systemic diseases and inherited disorders.[books.google.com]
  • Congenital muscular dystrophy-like changes were present in this patient. It is debated whether the clinical spectrum of the COFS phenotype should be expanded to include congenital muscular dystrophy:[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this report, we present evidence that two probands related to the Manitoba Aboriginal population group within which COFS syndrome was originally reported have cellular phenotypes indistinguishable from those in CS cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Alwadhi and Pankaj Garg Summary points: A seven-day-old with microcephaly with facial dysmorphism is presented.[docguide.org]
  • The clinical, radiological and pathological features of the patients are presented. One of the two cases had 11 pairs of ribs (Case 1) and the other had three-lobed left lung (Case 2), neither of which has been described in COFS syndrome previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hypoplastic Nails
  • Note the posture of the extremities, hypoplastic, nail-less toes, deep set small eyes and the blepharophimosis. Large low set ear pinna and long phil- trnm are also seen Fig. 3. CT scans of Case 2 at the age of 21A years.[myslide.es]

  • Treatment Treatment Options: No treatment is available for this disorder. References[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Diagnosis and treatment The condition is diagnosed by the presence of the typical physical characteristics, and the unusually slow growth. Confirmation is by molecular genetic testing.[news-medical.net]
  • TREATMENT Treatment is supportive and symptomatic. Individuals with the disorder often require tube feeding. Because COFS is genetic, genetic counseling is available. PROGRESSION COFS is a fatal disease. Death usually occurs by 5 years of age.[secure.ssa.gov]

  • Numerous etiologies are responsible for patho- logic intracranial calcifications [7, 10]. Tumors, some cerebral inflammatory diseases, vascular abnormali- ties and old intracranial hemorrhages are the most usual etiologic factors [7, 10].[myslide.es]
