Showing of 6 lipogranulomwtosis citations. A number sign is used with this entry because Farber lipogranulomatosis FRBRL is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the gene encoding acid ceramidase ASAH1; on chromosome 8p.

CC HPO: Farber lipogranulomatosis is the liporanulomatosis congenital disorder that affects lipid metabolism. The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.

These tissues show granulomas and lipid-laden macrophages. This article needs additional citations for verification. They described seven lipograhulomatosis of lipogranulomatosis Farber according to their characteristics: Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis by DNA testing is possible in families with a known disease-causing mutation.

In addition, three polymorphisms have been identified that have no effect on enzyme activity. To date, at least 20 different disease-linked mutations have been described in the acid ceramidase ASAH1 gene. Types 2 and 3 have signs and symptoms usually less important than the other types. This disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, that is, both copies of the gene in every cell must have mutations for alteration is expressed. Rabinovitz MD Christopher J. The human acid ceramidase gene ASAH: In a patient with severe Farber disease resulting in hydrops fetalis and death at age 3 lipogranhlomatosis Kattner et al.


Most children with Farber disease die by age 2, usually from lung disease.

Valle D, Beaudet A. The classic phenotype presents at around months of age with painful, swollen and stiff joints of the hands and feet, prominent subcutaneous nodules over pressure points, and progressive hoarseness leading to aphonia due to farbef cord infiltration.

We need long-term secure funding to provide you the information that you need at your fingertips. There was an issue during submission. As a result, the enzyme can not break correctly ceramides, accumulating in the lysosomes of various cells, including lung, liver, colon, skeletal muscle, cartilage and bone.

Prenatal diagnosis is possible. This gene encodes an enzyme called ceramidase acid, which lipograunlomatosis located in lysosomes. Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted.


However, in 1 case parents had the same family name in ancestors, and 2 of 3 families seen at Children’s Hospital, Boston, lipogranukomatosis of Portuguese extraction.

The histologic appearance was granulomatous. Direct assay of skin fibroblasts confirmed the diagnosis of ceramidase deficiency. Severe motor and mental retardation was evident. The girl also had hepatosplenomegaly, a relatively unusual feature of Farber disease; of 27 reported cases, 7 had hepatomegaly and 1 had splenomegaly. Otherwise it is hidden from view.
