Extractions: A complex congenital disturbance that occurs almost exclusively in newborn girls (95 %), characterized by bizarre, widespread pigmented macules of unusual shapes; and defects of teeth, eyes, nails, central nervous system and hair. Long lists of other symptoms includes retarded growth and mental retardation. Inheritance is X-linked dominant. It is usually lethal in males, who are probably the result of spontaneous mutations. The delineation of incontinentia pigmenti can be attributed to Sir Archibald Edward Garrod (1857-1936) who in 1906 wrote an account of a mentally retarded girl with tetraplegia and the characteristic skin pigmentation. In 1925 M. Bardach described the skin manifestations, as did Lechtleuthner that same year. Bloch in 1926 and Sulzberger in 1928 described a peculiar ectodermal and mesodermal defect that occurs in infants, characterized by a bullous eruption followed by pigmentation. In 1929 another publication appeared by Siemens, who in 1925 was the first to observe the case described by Lechtleuthner. In 1989 Sefiani and colleagues succeeded in assigning the locus of the faulty gene to band 28 of the long arm of the X-chromosome. An extensive review of the Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome was provided by Landy and Donnai in 1993.
Extractions: (advertisement) Synonyms, Key Words, and Related Terms: IP, Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome, Bloch-Siemens syndrome, familial incontinentia pigmenti, IP2 Background: Incontinentia pigmenti (IP), sometimes termed Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome, is an X-linked dominant single-gene disorder with neurologic, ophthalmologic, and dental involvement, as well as cutaneous findings. In 1906, Garrod probably reported the first case of IP and described it as a peculiar pigmentation of the skin in an infant. Subsequently, Bloch and Sulzberger further defined the condition as a clinical syndrome with a constellation of unique features, which include typical cutaneous lesions. Since then, a large number of small series and individual case reports have been published. Pathophysiology: IP is a disorder characterized by abnormalities of the tissues and organs derived from the ectoderm and neuroectoderm. The locus for IP is genetically linked to the factor VIII gene on chromosome band Xq28. Recently, Aradhya et al demonstrated that mutations in NEMO/IKK g , which encodes a critical component of the nuclear factor- k B (NF- k B) signaling pathway, are responsible for IP (Aradhya, 2001). Virtually all mutations eliminate the production of NF-

Extractions: The skin abnormalities of IP usually disappear by adolescence or adulthood without treatment. Diminished vision may be treated with corrective lenses, medication, or, in severe cases, surgery. Dental and hair problems may be treated by a specialist. Neurological symptoms such as seizures, muscle spasms, or mild paralysis may be controlled with medication and/or medical devices and with the advice of a neurologist. What is the prognosis?

Psychosocial Nutrition INCONTINENTIA PIGMENTI Incontinentia Pigmenti also called Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome or Bloch-Siemens syndrome is a complex hereditary disease with ectodermal, neurologic, ocular and musculoskeletal manifestations. It is an x-linked dominantly inherited disease, usually lethal in males. More than 95% of the reported cases are females, the few males being probably the result of spontaneous mutations. Chromosome studies have shown an increased frequency of aberrations and it has been suggested that this is a chromosomal breakage syndrome. Adolescents may have warty lesions around the nails with underlying lytic bone lesions. The pigmentation that was described as the third stage may be the only abnormality, it may be present first or may appear as the inflammatory lesions are subsiding, though not necessarily in the same sites. In addition, inflammatory lesions can develop in areas already pigmented. The pigmentation ranging in color from blue-grey or slate to brown is characteristic of the syndrome, and the bizarre "splashed" or "chinese figure" distribution is diagnostic. Occasionally, multiple linear and macular telangiectasia can be noted. The inflammatory lesions are uncommon after the age of 6 months but may be followed by atrophy or sclerosis. However, the pigmentation persists for many years, slowly fading until it is imperceptible by the second or third decade.

Extractions: Incontinentia Pigmenti (IP) (Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome) by Dr Helen Stewart Consultant in Clinical Genetics Churchill Hospital, Oxford, UK Incontinentia Pigmenti is a rare condition, affecting girls. Only in exceptional circumstances does it affect boys. IP affects many parts of the body. It can affect different people to different degrees. There are typically four stages that occur one after the other, though they may overlap. No specific treatment is needed for the skin changes. Stage 1 There is redness of the skin, then blistering, starting from the first few weeks of life. The blisters do not affect the face but occur in lines along the limbs and round the body. Blistering usually stops by four months of age, though blisters may recur at times when the child has a temperature. During this stage, the blisters should be kept clean and dry. Stage 2 As the blisters heal, warty areas occur on the skin of the hands and feet. In most cases these clear by six months of age. Stage 3 This is the stage that gives the condition its name. There are streaks and whorls of pigment along the limbs and round the body. These darken initially, then fade, usually by the age of 16 years.

Introduction The table below records disorders known to involve a lack of pigment (hypopigmentation) in hair fiber. Most of the disorders are piebald traits or subcategories of albinism. This is not necessarily a complete list of disorders involving hair hypopigmentation. There are many more hypopigmentary disorders of the skin that might also involve hair.

Where a disorder is known by more than one name, alternative names are given in the second column and the record duplicated in the first column under each respective name.

Extractions: hypotrichosis table Home Forums Privacy Advertising ... Home On this page... Introduction The tables below records disorders known to involve hypotrichosis. The first table lists disorders where hypotrichosis is a primary symptom. The second table lists disorders where hypotrichosis can be one of several symptoms. Typically the other symptoms are of greater concern and health or life threatening. Many of these conditions involving hypotrichosis as a secondary symptom are ectodermal dysplasias. The clinical distinction between alopecia and hypotrichosis is that alopecia involves hair growth that is later lost. Hypotrichosis is a lack of any hair growth. The distinction between alopecia and hypotrichosis is not clear cut for many disorders. Some dermatologists will disagree with my listing. You may find some disorders in both the alopecia and hypotrichosis listings. This is not necessarily a complete list of disorders involving hypotrichosis.

The condition was named because of the way the skin looks under the microscope. It was initially described in 1906 by Garrod, but the first complete description was written by Bloch and Sulzberger in 1928. "Bloch-Sulzberger Syndrome" is another name commonly used for IP. Other names are: Bloch-Siemens incontinentia pigmenti, melanoblastosis cutis linearis, and pigmented dermatosis, Siemens-Bloch type. All these names describe the same condition which we call IP. IP has not been studied in great detail until recently, so the information about it has been both limited and confusing. This discussion covers what is currently known or suspected about the disease but is not conclusive or complete. This information was taken in part from an article by Landy and Donnai, entitled "Incontinentia pigmenti (Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome)" in the Journal of Medical Genetics, 1993, pages 53-59. Medical vocabulary often can be confusing and misleading, so we recommend that parents and patients may wish to acquire a standard medical dictionary. These are available in the reference sections of most large bookstores. In general, medical writing tends to be as inclusive as possible. Therefore, descriptions of diseases or prognoses are frequently stated as "worst-case " situations. Remember that every sign, symptom, or finding is not found in every patient. Parents and patients should be selective and should interpret the information in light of their own situation(s).
