What is Klippel-feil syndrome NGS panel Test ?
Klippel-Feil syndrome NGS panel Test is a medical speciality that determines the cause and nature of diseases by examining and testing body tissues (EDTA blood or DNA). It is a Klippel-Feil syndrome NGS panel Test that screens of severe conditions.
Klippel-Feil syndrome is a bone disorder characterized by the abnormal joining (fusion) of two or more spinal bones in the neck (cervical vertebrae). Vertebral fusion is present from birth. Three significant features are a short neck, the resulting appearance of a low hairline at the back of the head, and a limited range of motion in the neck.
Most affected people have one or two of these characteristic features. Less than half of all individuals with Klippel-Feil syndrome have all three classic features of this condition. Klippel-Feil syndrome is estimated to occur in 1 in 40,000 to 42,000 newborns worldwide. Females seem to be affected slightly more often than males.
Symptoms of Klippel-Feil Syndrome:
KFS is a rare skeletal condition in which there is abnormal union or fusion (congenital synostosis) of two or more bones (vertebrae) within the neck. The spinal column or backbone is made up of 33 irregularly-shaped bones known as vertebrae. These bones are divided into different categories. The first seven vertebrae, beginning at the base of the skull, are known as the cervical vertebrae.
Causes of Klippel-Feil Syndrome:
Mutations in the GDF6, GDF3, or MEOX1 gene can cause Klippel-Feil syndrome. These genes are involved in proper bone development. The protein produced from the GDF6 gene is necessary for the formation of bones and joints, including those in the spine. While the protein produced from the GDF3 gene is known to be involved in bone development, its exact role is unclear.
Treatment for Klippel-Feil Syndrome:
The treatment of KFS is directed toward the specific symptoms and associated physical findings that are apparent in each individual. Such treatment may require the coordinated efforts of a team of medical professionals who may need to systematically and comprehensively plan an affected individual’s treatment.
Therapy for KFS can include a variety of conservative measures, including the use of cervical collars, braces, traction, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and various pain medications (analgesics).
