List of terms related to Larsen syndrome


Larsen syndrome (LS), also called Autosomal Dominant Larsen syndrome,[1] is a rare autosomal dominant[2] congenital disorder that occurs in about every 1 in 100,000 people. Its symptoms include hypermobility, congenital dislocations, brachycephaly and cleft palate.

The condition was first described in a 1950 journal report by L. J. Larsen, et al.[3]

Genetics

Larsen syndrome has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.

Larsen syndrome is caused by mutations in the FLNB (Filamin B) gene.[2]

Symptoms

A more complete list of symptoms includes:

  • Multiple joint dislocations
  • Foot deformities
  • Non-tapering, cylindrical shaped fingers
  • Unusual facial appearance
  • Less commonly occurring:
