A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that Haim-Munk syndrome (HMS) is caused by homozygous mutation in the gene encoding. Haim–Munk syndrome is a cutaneous condition caused, like Papillon-Lefevre Syndrome, by a mutation in the cathepsin C gene. It is named after Dr. Salim Haim. Abstract. Of the many palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) conditions, only Papillon- Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) and Haim-Munk syndrome (HMS) are associated with.

Click on image for details. General examination showed symmetrical, well demarcated, keratotic and confluent plaques affecting the skin of palms, soles and elbows [ Figure 3 ]. Investigational Therapies Information on current clinical trials is posted on the Internet at www.

Journal of Indian Society of Periodontology. Pairs of human chromosomes are numbered from 1 through 22, with an unequal 23rd pair of X and Y chromosomes for males and two X chromosomes for females. They carry sybdrome genetic characteristics of each individual. Information on current clinical trials is posted on the Internet at www.

The diagnosis of Haim-Munk syndrome may be confirmed by a thorough clinical synrdome that includes a detailed patient history and identification of characteristic physical findings.

Rare Disease Database

Keratosis palmo-plantaris congenita, with periodontosis, arachnodactyly and peculiar deformity of the terminal phalanges. Diagnosis of the disease often comes between the ages of three and five when infant teeth munkk to erupt, and the inflammation and degeneration of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth becomes apparent. Seven cases of Papillon-Lefevre syndrome.

With seeming clinical improvement, the dose of Acitretin was reduced to 0. Br J Dermatol ; Of palms, soles, and gums.


Haim—Munk syndrome is an inherited autosomal recessive trait.

The etiologic factor reported by Hart et al ,[ 9 ] was the missense mutations affecting both the alleles of Cathepsin C gene, located on chromosome 11q The pattern was entirely consistent with autosomal recessive inheritance. Teeth with poor prognosis were extracted. The gingiva was red, soft and edematous with profuse bleeding on probing. If both parents carry an altered mutated gene for the disorder, there is an increased risk that their children may inherit the two genes necessary for the development of the disorder.

We are determined to keep this website freely accessible. This page was last edited on 26 Julyat Recessive genetic disorders occur when an individual inherits the same abnormal gene for the same trait from each parent.

Puliyel and Sridharan Iyer noted that the patients reported by Smith and Rosenzweig were related to the patients of Haim and Munk Diagnosis The diagnosis of Haim-Munk syndrome may be confirmed by a thorough clinical evaluation that includes a detailed patient history and identification of characteristic physical findings.

Other treatment is symptomatic and supportive. Schopf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome is thought to be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. A year-old girl reported with the chief complaint of bleeding gums and mobility of teeth.

Haim-Munk syndrome

A genetic analysis of the Papillon-Lefevre syndrome in a Jewish family from Cochin. This usually occurs between the third and fifth year of life, when the infant teeth deciduous begin to erupt. Without appropriate treatment, most of the permanent teeth may be lost in the same manner by the age of approximately 16 years.


Mutation of the CTSC gene may result in reduced levels of cathepsin C or defective cathepsin C that cannot perform its normal junk in the body.

Haim-Munk syndrome also has arachnodactyly, acroosteolysis, and onychogryphosis. Report of a case and review of the cases in the literature. Although only arachnodactyly and pes planus were found in this case, still they can easily distinguish it from being a case of HMS. In many cases diagnosis of Haim—Munk syndrome zyndrome be difficult in small children, as many symptoms can be syndtome with other skin abnormalities.

Haim–Munk syndrome – Wikipedia

The CTSC gene regulates production encodes for of an enzyme i. The treatment of Haim-Munk syndrome is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in each individual. LambaFarrukh Farazand Shruti Tandon. Also, Hacham-Zadeh et al. Haim S, Munk J. Note severe alveolar bone loss in relation to the permanent teeth. Radiographic measurements of the skeletal structure of the normal hand. X-ray of skull and CT scan of head showed no abnormality.

The nails showed transverse grooving and slight pitting. Meleda disease is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Researchers also have found that certain mutations of the CTSC gene may cause Papillon-Lefevre syndrome allelic disorder.
