Inherited Disorder: Treacher Collins Syndrome, or mandibulofacial dysostosis is an inherited craniofacial disorder with a distinct set of characteristics. These characteristics include hypoplasia (underdevelopment) of the facial bones, clefting of the palate, ear anomalies and eye problems. While there is no "cure, " there are craniofacial teams that can help patients surgically with the syndrome.

No: Treacher collins syndrome is an autosomal dominant mutation of a gene that codes for a nucleolar phosphoprotein. Researchers cite chromasome 5 as the predominant location for this defect. About 60% of cases are thought to represent new mutations.

Can anyone tell me is treacher collins syndrome a mitochondrial disorder/disease?

Can anyone tell me is treacher collins syndrome a mitochondrial disorder/disease?

No: Tcs is an autosomal dominant disorder. The primary identified mutation is in the tcof1 gene (97%) which is located on chromosome 5q32-q33.1. There are at least 2 other gene defects that are responsible for some cases. Since these defects are in the main dna, it is not mitochondrial in origin.

Can people who are born with treacher collins syndrome, after surgeries, end up ok?

Can people who are born with treacher collins syndrome, after surgeries, end up ok?

Absolutely!: Results, both functional and esthetic will vary depending on the severity of the defects. Some treacher-collins patients do have some developmental disabilities as well as hearing and speech problems. Your best bet for advice for the long-term is being a patient in a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary cleft and craniofacial clinic.

Not Known: This disease has been diagnosed in about 300-500 people and is known as a disease entity only since 2005. Life expectancy is expected to increase like in marfans syndrome with improved awareness and medical progress. Due to the high risk of death from aortic aneurysm rupture, patients should be followed closely. A valuable resource for this is http://www. Loeysdietz. Org/index. Ph.

Lenox gastaut syndrome average life expectancy?

Lenox gastaut syndrome average life expectancy?

Haven't seen numbers: Haven't seen any numbers on life expectancy of lennox-gastaut patients. Maybe nobody has collected and published that information. One website reported a 3%-7% mortality in patients over a 9 year period (that sounds like 1/2 % per year). The deaths were often due to accidents. In such disorders, if a person is watched and cared for closely, he can outlive parents, and die of other natural causes.
