INFORMATION ABOUT bardetbiedl syndrome. bardet-biedl syndrome is a complexdisorder that affects many parts of the body including the retina.
Information courtesy of "The Foundation for Fighting Blindness" Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a complex disorder that affects many parts of the body including the retina. Individuals with this syndrome have a retinal degeneration similar to retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
Clinical description
The diagnosis of Bardet-Biedl syndrome is usually confirmed in childhood when visual problems due to RP are discovered. The first symptom of RP is night blindness. Night blindness makes it difficult to see in low light levels. RP then causes progressive loss of peripheral (side) vision. Peripheral vision loss is often referred to as tunnel vision. Individuals with Bardet-Biedl also experience central vision loss during childhood or adolescence. RP symptoms progress rapidly and usually lead to severe visual impairment by early adulthood. In addition to RP, polydactyly (extra fingers and/or toes) and obesity are defining characteristics of Bardet-Biedl syndrome. A diagnosis of Bardet-Biedl syndrome is usually first suspected when a child is born with polydactyly.

Researchers identify first gene responsible for Bardet-Biedl Syndrome HOUSTON(Sept. 1, 2000)The first gene linked to a complex disorder called Bardet-Biedl syndrome could provide clues to health problems in the general population, including obesity, kidney disease, blindness, and mental retardation. In the September issue of the scientific journal Nature Genetics , an international team of investigators, led by Baylor College of Medicine's Drs. Nicholas Katsanis, Richard A. Lewis and James R. Lupski, identify the first of at least six genes responsible for the syndrome. BBS is a rare medical condition initially characterized by extra fingers and toes, profound weight gain as early as 6 to 7 months of age, and vision problems by age 6 or 7. "Finding the genetic cause of BBS has been extremely challenging," said Katsanis, with the department of molecular and human genetics. "Although 5 BBS loci, or locations of a gene within the human genome, have been reported, we had been unable to identify a specific gene." After years of research, identification of the gene eluded researchers until the recent announcement of a gene responsible for McKursick-Kaufman Syndrome, another rare disorder that shares a number of similarities with BBS.

Recent update from: 12.03.2003 In the recent past the number of mutations in genes underlying retinal disorders has increased. This page is intended to summarize these mutations. Below you will find links to subpages showing a collection of mutations sorted by proteins. The collection will be extend on demand.
The mutations will be presented according to the guidelines reported on our Mutation Nomenclature Page.

Pourrait-il nous la redonner? ou notre webmaster? Alain BRON *209900 BARDET- BIEDL SYNDROME, TEXT This condition is characterized by mental retardation, pigmentary retinopathy, polydactyly, obesity, and hypogenitalism, and has incorrectly been called LMBB (Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl) syndrome. Ammann (1970) pointed out that these features were present in the patients of Biedl (1922) and Bardet (1920), but that the patients of Laurence and Moon had a distinct disorder with paraplegia and without polydactyly and obesity (see Laurence-Moon syndrome, 245800). As indicated by Ammann's study, residual heterogeneity may exist even after the Laurence-Moon syndrome is separated. In Bedouin families in the Negev region of Israel, presumably the same kindreds as those studied by Kwitek-Black et al. (1993), Elbedour et al. (1994) performed echocardiographic evaluations of cardiac involvement in BBS. They stated that they found cardiac involvement in 50% of cases, justifying inclusion of echocardiographic examination in the clinical evaluation and follow-up of these patients. However, their table 1 gives echocardiographic abnormality in only 7 of 22 cases and these included 1 case of bicuspid aortic valve, 1 case of mild thickening of the interventricular septum, 1 case of 'moderate tricuspid regurgitation,' and 1 case of mild pulmonic valve stenosis. The occurrence of renal abnormality in 11 of the 22 patients on kidney ultrasonography was somewhat more impressive than the cardiac involvement.

His clinical practice of retinal and uveal diseases includes hereditary eye disease. He pioneered the mapping of X-linked ocular diseases, including X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa, Choroideremia, the Oculo-Cerebro-Renal Syndrome of Lowe, Blue Cone Monochromacy, and the Nance-Horan X-linked cataract-dental syndrome. He was a substantial contributor to the isolation of the gene for X-linked (Nettleship-Falls) Ocular Albinism (OA1). Current investigations apply linkage strategies and the affected sibling-pair method to map and to isolate genes for recessively inherited ocular disorders, such as Stargardt Disease / Fundus Flavimaculatus (a form of juvenile macular degeneration), the (Laurence-Moon-) Bardet-Biedl syndrome (retinal dystrophy, obesity, polydactylia, developmental retardation, and renal disease), Rod Monochromacy (complete congenital achromatopsia), Fundus Albipunctatus (a form of hereditary nightblindness), and Leber Congenital Amaurosis. BBS1, the most common form of BBS, was mapped here and BBS6 was identified here first. The gene for Stargardt Disease was isolated and the role of this gene in Age-Related Macular Degeneration and autosomal and recessive forms of retinitis pigmentosa explored here first.
