Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by physical abnormalities affecting the fingers and toes (digits) and the. A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) is caused by heterozygous mutation in the. The Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) is a pleiotropic, multiple congenital anomaly syndrome. It is rare, but precise estimates of.

A de novo GLI3 mutation in a patient with acrocallosal syndrome. Barakat syndrome Tricho—rhino—phalangeal syndrome. OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.

In all 5 children, diagnosis of GCPS was confirmed by molecular analysis of GLI3, which revealed heterozygosity for a missense mutation and a nonsense mutation in 2 patients, respectively, as well as 3 complete gene deletions detected by array CGH in the remaining 3 patients. When the parents are clinically unaffected, the risk to the sibs of a proband appears to be low. KIF7 mutations cause fetal hydrolethalus and acrocallosal syndromes.

Please review our privacy policy. Greig described digital malformations and peculiar skull shape in mother and daughter. Syndromes with unusual facies: It is difficult to estimate a rate of non-penetrance from a single instance, but it is probably a small fraction.

Unfortunately, it is not free to produce. This page was last edited on 20 Novemberat One case of apparent non- penetrance has been reported [ Debeer et al ]. Greig, a Scot, pronounced his name ‘Gregg’ Ferguson-Smith, For individuals with a family history of affected family members, the prognosis is based on the degree of severity present in the family, as intrafamilial variability appears to be low.

Gestational age is expressed as menstrual weeks calculated either from the first day of the last normal menstrual period or by ultrasound measurements.

High resolution cytogenetic analysis using G- and R-banding did not uncover any imbalance of the affected chromosomes, nor were the late replicating patterns changed. The abnormal gene can be inherited from either parent, or can be the result of a new mutation gene change in the affected individual.

Most of the variants have been seen in multiple unrelated persons and are not believed to be associated with any phenotypic effects, although they have not been rigorously analyzed for subtle effects.

In some cases, the condition results from a chromosomal abnormality, such as a large deletion or translocation cephalopolysyndacctyly genetic material, in the region of chromosome 7 that contains the GLI3 gene. A first-degree relative of a proband for whom the diagnosis has been independently established. The Grieg polysyndactyly syndrome.

FISH -metaphase clinically available. The acrocallosal syndrome shows some phenotypic overlap with GCPS. Some individuals with GCPS have a high anterior hairline, and a prominent or bossed forehead.


The diagnosis should be made with caution in infants with multiple other malformations, especially in the absence of a positive family history. If the patient has significant developmental delay or intellectual disability, CGH analysis should be done first, followed by sequence analysis of GLI3and then Giemsa-banded karyotyping if no GLI3 pathogenic variant has been identified by the other two methods.

Congenital disorders of musculoskeletal system Transcription factor deficiencies Autosomal dominant disorders Syndromes with dysmelia Syndromes affecting head size Rare syndromes. These patients had manifestations that overlapped with the acrocallosal syndrome.

In some cases, only the soft tissue is fused, but cephalopolysyndactyyl others, the bone or boney cartilage may be fused. Alone we are rare. Some subtypes of oral-facial-digital syndrome have similar limb malformations [ Gorlin et al ].

For information about clinical trials sponsored by private sources, contact: The degree of digital fusion may also vary from the skin only joining part of the distance to the fingertip to the skin being joined all the way to the tip of the finger. The mild end of the GCPS spectrum is a continuum with preaxial polysyndactyly type IV and crossed polydactyly preaxial polydactyly of the feet and postaxial polydactyly of the hands plus syndactyly of fingers and toes Greig syndrome associated with an interstitial deletion of 7p: July 9, ; Last Update: GLI3 is the only gene in which pathogenic variants are known to be associated with Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome.


GLI3 zinc-finger gene interrupted by translocations in Greig syndrome families. Sequence analysis detects variants that are benign, likely benign, of uncertain significancelikely pathogenic, or pathogenic.

Am J Hum Genet. However, the EGFR genes were intact in a second patient with deletion of 7p Le syndrome de Greig: The risk to other family members depends on the genetic status of the proband’s parents: Am J Hum Genet.

This article needs additional citations for verification. The daughter, of above average intelligence, had polysyndactyly and a peculiar skull shape in the form of expanded cranial vault leading to high forehead and bregma, with no evidence of precocious closure of cranial sutures.

Syndrmoe limbs may manifest preaxial or postaxial polydactyly and some limbs may have five normal digits. The term “Greig syndrome” describes the dyad of widely spaced eyes and macrocephaly. Additional physical abnormalities may be present in some patients. Once the clinical features consistent with GCPS are confirmed through X-rays and CT scansindividuals without significant developmental delay or intellectual disability should have genetic testing through sequence analysis.
