Autosomal visceral heterotaxy-8 is an autosomal recessive developmental disorder characterized by visceral situs inversus associated with complex congenital. MalaCards based summary: Visceral Heterotaxy, also known as heterotaxia, is related to heterotaxy and right atrial isomerism. An important gene associated. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: Heterotaxy, visceral, 5, autosomal: A form of visceral heterotaxy, a complex disorder due to disruption of the normal left-right asymmetry.

Congenital Abnormality Growth abnormality See: Recent studies have shown higher rates of heterotaxy syndrome among Hispanic infants of Mexican descent, as well as female infants of non-Hispanic black and white mothers. Part A, Clinical and Molecular Teratology. This biliary atresia can lead to acute problems such as nutrient malabsorptionpale stools, dark urine, and abdominal swelling.

Genes See tests for all associated and related genes Associated genes Help Genes reported to contribute to the condition. The etiology of CHTD is complex, with contributions from environmental exposure, chromosomal abnormalities, and gene defects.

Diagnostic criteria for atrial isomerism includes observation of symmetry of thoracic visceral organs upon echocardiogram, arrhythmia upon electrocardiogram, and chest x-ray for confirmation of the heart’s location across the left-right axis.

Alternatively, longevity of neonates with mild cardiac lesions is unaffected.

It is also an X-linked disorderso testing for ZIC3 mutations is highly encouraged in male births. In 1 infant, the abnormalities were apparent on prenatal ultrasound at 21 weeks’ gestation. One patient presented with cyanosis at age 3 months and was found to have dextrocardia with atrial situs inversus, complete atrioventricular canal defect, transposition of the great arteries TGA and pulmonary atresia heterltaxy a duct-like aortopulmonary collateral. It is thought to be due to the presence of a double left side the right side is identical to the left.


Each of the symptoms of situs ambiguus must be managed with appropriate treatment dependent upon the organ system involved.

Heterotaxy, visceral, X-linked

Situs inversus is the mirror image of situs solituswhich is normal asymmetric distribution of the abdominothoracic visceral organs. Heterotaxy, visceral, 1, X-linked.

Neither mutation altered ciliary architecture, function, or rotational movement. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Heterotaxy syndrome Lateralization defect Visceral heterotaxy Prevalence: Isomeric patients are first treated by inserting a shunt that will move visderal blood through the pulmonary circuit.

In pair organs hetrotaxy are not quite symmetrical such as the lungs, kidneys or suprarenal glands, the symmetry is inversed or absent. A majority of left atrial isomeric patients have defects throughout the biliary treewhich is responsible for bile production, even when the gall bladder is functional and morphologically normal.


The organs are oriented randomly with respect to the left-right axis and with respect to one another Srivastava, The Fontan procedure routes blood through the patient’s single hetetotaxyto the lungshetwrotaxy into systemic circulation. In affected members of 9 unrelated families with HTX7, Guimier et al. CC HPO: Non-cardiac symptoms include impairments of the liver and gastrointestinal tract. Heterotaxy, visceral, 4, autosomal. Heterotaxy in general refers to any defect of left-right laterality and arrangement of the visceral organs.

Right atrial appendage isomerism, also called right atrial isomerism, is a cardiac development defect in which the heart has bilateral right atria and atrial attachments in the muscle wall, as opposed to the normal right atrium and left atrium. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us. They also experience complications with systemic and pulmonary blood vesselssignificant morbidityand sometimes death. Summary vissceral related texts. Heterotaxy, visceral, 8, autosomal.


Diagnostic methods Diagnosis relies on medical imaging or on the identification of mutations in the ZIC3 gene, in the case of X-linked forms. Left atrial isomerism can have varied clinical manifestations, including a later onset of symptoms. Complete situs inversus is not, in itself, a problem.

Heterotaxia with recurrent respiratory infections are named ciliary dyskninesia see this term. The Indian Journal of Pediatrics. Heterotaxy is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder.

Congenital Abnormality Abnormality of the genitourinary system See: Situs ambiguus Classification and external resources Specialty cardiologyangiology [ edit on Wikidata ]. Gene mutations that lead to atrial visceal is a growing area of research. Features included dextrocardia, transposition of the great arteries, atrial and ventricular defects, abnormal vessel drainage, lung isomerism, inverted liver lobation, and dextrogastria.

Situs ambiguus – Wikipedia

They can manifest as arhinencephalia, myelomeningocele, urological anomalies, hypertelorism, cleft palate and mostly, anomaly of the sacral spine and the anus. Distribution of these organs largely dictates treatment, clinical outcomes, and further evaluation.
