He also had significant shortening of the distal phalanges with osteolysis and tufting, as well as osteoresorption of the distal ends of the clavicles. Reports Suggesting Autosomal Recessive Inheritance Recessive inheritance was suggested by the report from Egypt of affected sisters, children of first cousins Gabr et al.

The scalp veins become prominent because of loss of subcutaneous fat and loss of hair.

There are 4 children in the family; the girls are unaffected, both boys are affected. To confirm the diagnosis, the child was subjected to radiological and biochemical investigations. 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.

Heat-labile enzymes in skin fibroblasts from subjects with progeria. Severe bone changes in a case of Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome.


The HGPS gene was initially localized to chromosome 1q by observing 2 cases of uniparental isodisomy of 1q, and 1 case phenotgpe a 6-Mb paternal interstitial deletion. Case of congenital absence of hair, with atrophic condition of the skin and its appendages, in a boy whose mother had been almost wholly bald from alopecia areata from the age of six.

Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome: A Rare Genetic Disorder

Both mutations resulted in increased use of the cryptic exon 11 donor splice site observed with the common C-T mutation The 2 brothers reported as having progeria by Parkash et al. Lipodystrophy is generalized, only intra-abdominal fat depositions remain present.

It shows the patient being unable to stand and is lying down, and chest showed pectus carinatum structure. Cao and Hegele confirmed the findings of Eriksson et al.

A clinically unaffected sister was heterozygous for 1 of the mutations, and each clinically unaffected parent was heterozygous for 1 of the mutations. Brown and Darlington ; Goldstein and Moerman ; Harley et al.


Polarization microscopy studies showed that the lamins in HGPS nuclei were birefringent, forming orientationally ordered microdomains with reduced deformability. The mechanism of treatment involved the inhibition of farnesyl pyrophosphate synthesis and prevention of cross-prenylation of prelamin A. There is no effective treatment to date.

The clinical observations of Jonathan Hutchinson.

Paterson recorded the cases of 2 possibly affected brothers whose parents were first cousins. Both of these mutations were shown to result in activation of a cryptic splice site within exon 11 of the lamin A gene, resulting in production of a protein product that deletes 50 amino acids near the C terminus.
