Ventriculomegaly-Cystic Kidney Disease

Congenital Nephrosis-Cerebral Ventriculomegaly Syndrome


Presentation

  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.com]
  • Acronym VMCKD Disclaimer Any medical or genetic information present in this entry is provided for research, educational and informational purposes only.[uniprot.org]

  • Neonatal cases of GA-II are usually diagnosed soon after birth, when patients present with severe metabolic acidosis.[path.upmc.edu]
  • Retinal dystrophy, cystic kidney disease, liver fibrosis and polydactyly are variably present, resulting in significant phenotypic heterogeneity and overlap with other ciliopathies.[jhu.pure.elsevier.com]

  • In earlier years, one had to rely on rigorous imaging of the vertebral column to note any asymmetry, splaying (Figure 2), or posterior divergence of its echogenic (ossified) elements as indicators of open neural tube defects or myelomeningoceles (MMC)[healio.com]

Workup

  • Additional workup in selected patients may include serologies and CSF analysis. Ocular miastenia must be included in the differential diagnosis in all cases of motility disorders, expecially when pupil is not involved.[docksci.com]

Prognosis

  • It summarizes the prevalence, etiology, prenatal sonographic features and prognosis for both common and rare fetal abnormalities.[routledge.com]

  • Pulmonary hypoplasia has a universally poor prognosis. It is rarely of primary origin and is most often a secondary complication of severe oligohydramnios associated with bilateral renal dysfunction.[healio.com]
  • -Associated with Trisomy 13 & others chromosomal abnormalities (50%) -Prognosis: Many abort; if delivered...many die, if survive severely retarded.[quizlet.com]
  • Thus, the prognosis should be individualized depending on specific etiology, but this cannot always be determined antenatally.[glowm.com]
