Summary of "New ocular finding in Baraitser-Winter syndrome."

Baraitser-Winter syndrome was first described as a syndrome of mental retardation with bilateral ptosis, iris coloboma, widely spaced eyes, broad epicanthus, flattened nasal bridge, hypertelorism, and short stature (Baraitser and Winter, 1988; Baraitser-Winter- iris co, 2016). In a recent review of 42 cases, the phenotypic spectrum has broadened including high-arched eyebrows, short upturned nose tip, long philtrum, cleft lip and palate, abnormally shaped ears, deafness, congenital heart defects, microphthalmia, metopic ridge, microcephaly, pachygyria, progressive joint stiffness, epilepsy, syndactyly, and dystonia, among other less reported signs (Baraitser and Winter, 1988; Ganesh et al., 2005; Abou Henedy et al., 2011; Verloes et al., 2015). The syndrome is due to a variant on either ACTB or ACTG1 genes (Di Donato et al., 2013; Rivière et al., 2012). We report a 3-year-old girl with short stature, mild developmental delay and intellectual disability, minor brain anomalies and very few dysmorphic features including unusual stroma of the irises and corectopia. Exome sequencing reported a de novo pathogenic variant on the ACTB gene. The present report adds a new ocular finding to the phenotypic spectrum which may be mild.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ocular manifestations secondary to various NEOPLASMS in which antibodies to antigens of the primary tumor cross-react with ocular antigens. This autoimmune response often leads to visual loss and other ocular dysfunctions.

The dioptric adjustment of the EYE (to attain maximal sharpness of retinal imagery for an object of regard) referring to the ability, to the mechanism, or to the process. Ocular accommodation is the effecting of refractive changes by changes in the shape of the CRYSTALLINE LENS. Loosely, it refers to ocular adjustments for VISION, OCULAR at various distances. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

A primary headache disorder that is characterized by frequent short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform pain attacks in the ocular area, with CONJUNCTIVA fluid-filling and tearing. SUNCT syndrome is usually resistant to treatment.

An autosomal dominant disorder with an acronym of its seven features (LENTIGO; ELECTROCARDIOGRAM abnormalities; ocular HYPERTELORISM; PULMONARY STENOSIS; abnormal genitalia; retardation of growth; and DEAFNESS or SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS). This syndrome is caused by mutations of PTPN11 gene encoding the non-receptor PROTEIN TYROSINE PHOSPHATASE, type 11, and is an allelic to NOONAN SYNDROME. Features of LEOPARD syndrome overlap with those of NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 which is caused by mutations in the NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 GENES.

Ocular disorders attendant upon non-ocular disease or injury.
