OMIA:002136-9685 : Goldenhar syndrome in Felis catus (domestic cat)
Categories: Craniofacial phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 164210 (trait)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Species-specific description: Berkowski et al. (2018) concluded that "The congenital abnormalities observed resembled those described for human patients with Goldenhar syndrome".
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
Clinical features: Berkowski et al. (2018): "Physical examination revealed bilateral microphthalmia, bilaterally symmetrical corneal dermoids, ankyloblepharon, superior and inferior entropion, prognathism, and facial asymmetry with deviation of the nasal septum. Computed tomography revealed malformed, thickened bony orbits with mineralization of the orbital ligament bilaterally. Moderate rightward deviation of the nasal septum and ventral nasal meatus was also evident, with no identifiable maxillary sinuses. Results of MRI of the brain were unremarkable. Abdominal ultrasonography showed an irregularly marginated left kidney and a right kidney defect suggestive of chronic renal infarction. An abnormal, well-demarcated, focally thickened region of the muscularis externa of the jejunum was also evident."
