Stickler Syndrome


Description:
Stickler Syndrome is a group of heredity conditions characterized by a distinctive facial appearance. It includes eye abnormalities, hearing loss, and joint problems. The symptoms can vary, however. Many people with Stickler Syndrome have severe nearsightedness because of a noticeable gel that fills the eyeballs.
Inheritance:There is a 50% chance that your offspring will have the disease. Stickler Syndrome has also been passed with a misprint in it from a parent. It is caused by mutations in the COL2A1, COL9A1, COL11A1, and COL11A2 genes. These are genes involved in a formation of protein called collagen.
Symptoms:
  • Joint problems
  • Eye abnormalities
  • Hearing loss
  • Nearsightedness
  • Breathing difficulties
Daily Life:



Diagnosis:Stickler Syndrome can sometimes be diagnosed based on your child’s medical history. Sometimes you can diagnose it with even a simple physical exam. Additional test are sometimes needed to find the severity of the symptoms and help direct treatment decisions. X-rays can look at bone structures to see if there are any abnormalities. Eye exams can also see if gel is filling in your eyes.
Treatment:
While there is no cure for Stickler syndrome, treatments can help control symptoms and prevent complications. In some cases, surgery may be needed to correct some of the physical abnormalities associated with Stickler syndrome.
Research:
The NIAMS is conducting an in-depth history study on people who have Stickler syndrome and other diseases. Scientist are studying people who have stickler syndrome closely, and over a long period of time. They want to get a more complete picture of the disease. They hope to improve understanding of the genetic origins of the disease.
Additional Facts: Stickler Syndrome is often diagnosed during childhood. It is also called Heredity Arthro Ophthalmopathy. Stickler Syndrome has four sub divisions:
- Stickler Syndrome 1
- Stickler Syndrome 2
- Stickler Syndrome 3
- Stickler Syndrome 4
