Wieacker syndrome

Common Name(s)

Wieacker syndrome

Wieacker-Wolff syndrome is a severe X-linked recessive neurodevelopmental disorder affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems. It is characterized by onset of muscle weakness in utero (fetal akinesia). Affected boys are born with severe contractures, known as arthrogryposis, and have delayed motor development, facial and bulbar weakness, characteristic dysmorphic facial features, and skeletal abnormalities, such as hip dislocation, scoliosis, and pes equinovarus. Those that survive infancy show mental retardation. Carrier females may have mild features of the disorder (summary by {2:Hirata et al., 2013}).
