Pendred syndrome

Common Name(s)

Pendred syndrome

Pendred syndrome is a disorder typically associated with hearing loss and a thyroid condition called goiter. Other abnormalities of the inner ear are also common in Pendred syndrome. Some affected individuals have problems with balance caused by dysfunction of the part of the inner ear that helps maintain the body's balance and orientation (the vestibular system). Additionally, a structure called the vestibular aqueduct is unusually large in people with Pendred syndrome. Mutations in the SLC26A4 gene cause about half of all familial cases of Pendred syndrome. In some cases, the cause of Pendred syndrome is unknown. Researchers are looking for additional genetic changes that may underlie the condition. Pendred syndrome is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern.

Lack of significant association between mutations of KCNJ10 or FOXI1 and SLC26A4 mutations in Pendred syndrome/enlarged vestibular aqueducts.
 

Author(s): Priya Landa, Ann-Marie Differ, Kaukab Rajput, Lucy Jenkins, Maria Bitner-Glindzicz

Journal:

 

Pendred syndrome is a common autosomal recessive disorder causing deafness. Features include sensorineural hearing impairment, goitre, enlarged vestibular aqueducts (EVA) and occasionally Mondini dysplasia. Hearing impairment and EVA may occur in the absence of goitre or thyroid dyshormonogensis ...

Journal: Endocr. J.. 2013 ;60(6):805-11.

 

Pendred syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by sensorineural deafness, a partial defect in iodide organification, and dyshormonogenetic goiter. Several cases of Pendred syndrome with follicular thyroid carcinomas were reported previously. Here we report identical ...

Functional characterization of wild-type and mutated pendrin (SLC26A4), the anion transporter involved in Pendred syndrome.
 

Author(s): Silvia Dossena, Simona Rodighiero, Valeria Vezzoli, Charity Nofziger, Elisabetta Salvioni, Marta Boccazzi, Elisabeth Grabmayer, Guido Bottà, Giuliano Meyer, Laura Fugazzola, Paolo Beck-Peccoz, Markus Paulmichl

Journal: J. Mol. Endocrinol.. 2009 Sep;43(3):93-103.

 

Pendred syndrome (PS) is the most frequent form of genetically related syndromic hearing loss, and is associated with mutations of pendrin, encoded by the SLC26A4 gene. This protein localizes to the cellular membrane and permits the exchange of anions between the cytosol and extracellular ...
