J Am Acad Dermatol. Genetic Heterogeneity of Cockayne Syndrome Cockayne syndrome is a genetically heterogeneous disorder, and certain types show some overlap with certain forms of xeroderma pigmentosum XPanother disorder caused by defective DNA repair.

Remarkably, in striking contrast with xeroderma pigmentosum, patients with CS have no significant increase in skin cancer or infection Nance and Berry, A Review of Two Cases.

She exhibited mental retardation but did not have cataract and was still ambulatory at the age of 10 years. CS patients also present sensitivity to sunlight, dry skin and extremities that are usually cold and cyanotic.


The majority of patients with abnormal brain imaging had calcifications and white matter changes, with a minority having cerebellar corpus callosum or ventriculomegaly abnormalities.

A fibroblast culture was established from a skin biopsy in order to study the effect of UV radiation on RNA synthesis. This website also contains material copyrighted by 3rd parties.

Cockayne Syndrome

Xeroderma pigmentosum, Cockayne syndrome and trichothiodystrophy: Williams and Wilkins pub. However, the patients’ fibroblasts had normal rates of UV-induced unscheduled DNA synthesis, indicating that the defect in these cells sinrrome not due to abnormal DNA excision dde. Brain CT, bone x-rays, and auditory and ophthalmologic evaluation confirmed the clinical impression of CS.

Localization of the nucleotide excision repair gene ERCC6 to human chromosome 10qq The findings differentiated CS from xeroderma pigmentosum, in which DNA excision repair is deficient. Genetic complementation groups in Cockayne syndrome. If you log out, you will be required to enter your username and password the next time you visit.

Cockayne syndrome II, or severe Cockayne syndrome, presents at birth with accelerated facial and somatic features. Pathophysiology Cockayne syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder. CC HPO: The group C patient was thought to have xeroderma pigmentosum also and was the sole known representative of the XP complementation group B Regarding differential diagnoses, progeria syndrome, xeroderma pigmentosum XP and Seckel’s syndrome were the main disorders to be excluded.

In view of these findings, the primary disorder of central serotonin metabolism was considered and the proband was treated with 5-hydroxytryptophan. Deficient repair of the transcribed strand of active genes in Cockayne’s syndrome cells. The ultraviolet sensitivity of Cockayne syndrome cells is not a consequence of reduced cellular NAD content.

Perioperative management of patients with Cockayne syndrome – recognition of accelerated cockayen with growth arrest. Microcephaly and neurological signs similar to the index case were also reported. CS is very rare less than cases having been reported in the literature Cleaver and Kraemer, They found that although CS cells are 3-fold more sensitive to NA-AAF than are normal cells and are unable to recover the ability to synthesize RNA, this sensitivity is not due to defective transcription-coupled repair of active genes.
