Langer-Giedion syndrome associated with congenital dural arterio-venous fistula


Leu, Severina; Valavanis, Anton; Baltsavias, Gerasimos (2015). Langer-Giedion syndrome associated with congenital dural arterio-venous fistula. Child's Nervous System, 31(5):801-804.

Abstract

Langer-Giedion syndrome (LGS) is a rare disease caused by deletion of chromosome 8q23.3-q24.11. Clinical manifestations include among others multiple exostoses, short stature, intellectual disability, and typical facial dysmorphism. Dural arterio-venous shunts (DAVS) in the pediatric age are rare lesions, which have been classified into three types: dural sinus malformations (DSM), infantile type DAVS (IDAVS), and adult type DAVS (ADAVS). We report a case of a patient with a known LGS who was diagnosed with complex intracranial dural AV fistula at the age of 20. An association between LGS and intracranial dural AV fistulas has to our knowledge never been reported before.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
