Tall Stature and Macrodactyly of the Great Toes Due to a Novel Mutation in the Natriuretic Peptide Receptor-2 Gene

Lauffer Peter , van Duyvenvoorde Hemine , van Haeringen Arie , van der Kaay Danielle

Background: Mutations in the gene encoding the natriuretic peptide receptor-2 gene (NPR2) are responsible for monogenic growth disorders. Loss-of-function variants cause extreme short stature and skeletal dysplasia. Gain-of-function mutations cause tall stature with - in some cases - macrodactyly of the great toes, a Marfanoid habitus, arachnodactyly and scoliosis. We describe a novel gain-of-function mutation in exon 8 of NPR2 in a family wi...

Down syndrome (DS) is characterized by a higher incidence of congenital hypothyroidism (CH) and a high prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) early in life. Children and adults with DS have an increased risk of developing autoimmune thyroid disease, however CH and early SH cannot be explained by thyroid autoimmunity. The etiology of CH and early SH in DS remains to be elucidated. Considering the recently discovered genome-wide transcriptional and epigenetic alterations ...

Background: Isolated aldosterone synthase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by pathogenic variants in CYP11B2. To date, more than forty different pathogenic variants in the CYP11B2 gene causing isolated aldosterone synthase deficiency have been identified. We report on a novel pathogenic CYP11B2 variant.Case report: The second child (male) of consanguineous, healthy parents, presented shortly after...
