Cranioectodermal Dysplasia

Common Name(s)

Cranioectodermal Dysplasia

Cranioectodermal dysplasia (CED), also known as Sensenbrenner syndrome, is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by sagittal craniosynostosis and facial, ectodermal, and skeletal anomalies (summary by {5:Gilissen et al., 2010}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Cranioectodermal Dysplasia Cranioectodermal dysplasia-2 (CED2; {613610}) is caused by mutation in the WDR35 gene ({613602}) on chromosome 2p24.1; CED3 ({614099}) is caused by mutation in the IFT43 gene ({614068}) on chromosome 14q24.3; and CED4 ({614378}), is caused by mutation in the WDR19 gene ({608151}) on chromosome 4p14.
