About Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3

What is Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3?

Camptodactyly Syndrome, Guadalajara Type 3 (CSG3) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the permanent flexion of the fingers and toes, as well as other skeletal abnormalities. It is caused by a mutation in the gene encoding the protein filamin A, which is involved in the formation of the cytoskeleton. Symptoms of CSG3 include camptodactyly (permanent flexion of the fingers and toes), joint contractures, scoliosis, and short stature. Other features may include facial dysmorphism, intellectual disability, and hearing loss. Treatment is supportive and may include physical therapy, splinting, and orthopedic surgery.

What are the causes of Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3?

Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3 (CGD3) is a rare genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the gene encoding the protein filamin A (FLNA). This mutation results in a decrease in the amount of filamin A protein in the body, which can lead to a variety of physical and neurological symptoms. The most common symptom of CGD3 is camptodactyly, which is a permanent flexion of the fingers and toes. Other symptoms may include joint contractures, scoliosis, facial dysmorphism, intellectual disability, and seizures. The exact cause of the mutation in the FLNA gene is unknown, but it is believed to be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.



What are the treatments for Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3?

The treatments for Camptodactyly Syndrome, Guadalajara Type 3 (CSGT3) vary depending on the severity of the condition. Generally, treatment focuses on improving range of motion and reducing pain. This may include physical therapy, splinting, and stretching exercises. In more severe cases, surgery may be recommended to correct the deformity. Other treatments may include occupational therapy, orthotics, and bracing. In some cases, medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be prescribed to reduce pain and inflammation.



What are the risk factors for Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3?

1. Genetic predisposition: Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3 is an autosomal recessive disorder, meaning that it is caused by a mutation in both copies of a gene.

2. Family history: Individuals with a family history of Camptodactyly syndrome, Guadalajara type 3 are at an increased risk of developing the condition.
