Heritable Diseases of Connective Tissue. In book: Kelley's Textbook of Rheumatology (ppe3) FBN1 mutations have been found not only in MFS but also in a range of connective Author: Deborah Krakow. This groundbreaking new text explains and documents the scientific basis of chronic pain in Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) and other heritable disorders of connective tissue from the physiological, epidemiological, genetic and clinical viewpoints.
Hypermobility syndrome (HMS) is an inherited connective tissue disorder affecting collagen that is characterized by a collection of features and symptoms. HMS is often encountered in patients, but it is easily overlooked. This practical resource educates readers . Heritable disorders of connective tissue are a heterogenous group of genetic conditions caused by defects of extracellular matrix elements such as collagen, elastin, mucopolysaccharides or related biomolecules. The genetic cause of many connective tissue disorders has been elucidated, while others are yet to be discovered or further defined.
Like you I'm looking for more of the science. I recommend you take a look at the book I referenced above put out by NIH. I was really surprised at the information, definitely not a self-help book. Anyway, this I Copied and Pasted from PubMed, the chapter from the book you bought. Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases. classification of connective tissue disorders Some of the most common conditions that are transmitted genetically in families are disorders that produce clinically obvious changes in the skeleton, skin, or other relatively acellular tissues that have been loosely defined as connective tissues.

This book - heritable disorders of connective tissue (HDCT) - represents over 80 years of research at Johns Hopkins Hospital at the Moore Clinic under the initiative of Dr.
Victor McKusick. He died several years ago, a towering figure in the study of these HDCT genetic disorders, of which some have been identified and by: The Second Edition of Connective Tissue and Its Heritable Disorders: Molecular, Genetic, and Medical Aspects is the definitive reference text in its field, with over 40% more pages on the nature, diagnosis, and treatment of disease than its predecessor.

Some heritable disorders of connective tissue change the look and growth of skin, bones, joints, heart, blood vessels, lungs, eyes, and ears. Others change how these tissues work. Many, but not all, are rare. Common heritable disorders of connective tissue include: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome mostly affects the skin and joints.
Connective tissue. The second edition of Connective Tissue and Its Heritable Disorders has been vastly expanded, in comparison with the first edition, as is consistent with the rapid progress in the field over the last 10 years. The authors of individual chapters are all leaders in the field, and the book has been well edited to give it a consistent by: 1.

(Victor Almon), Heritable disorders of connective tissue. Saint Louis, Mosby, Abstract. The Marfan syndrome, Ehlers—Danlos syndrome, and osteogenesis imperfecta are systemic genetic disorders of connective tissue.
The wide variability of expression has led to the delineation of distinct phenotypic types within each of the three : Petros Tsipouras. Heritable connective tissue disorders. Marfan syndrome – a genetic disease causing abnormal fibrillin.; Ehlers–Danlos syndrome – defect in the synthesis of collagen (Type I or III) causes progressive deterioration of collagens, with different EDS types affecting different sites in the body, such as joints, heart valves, organ walls, arterial lty: Rheumatology.

Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases features very prominent physicians and scientists as contributors who bring their most recent discoveries to the benefit of readers. Their expertise will help clinicians with proper diagnosis of sometimes elusive and uncommon heritable diseases of soft connective tissues.

It includes a detailed discussion of the genetics, anatomy, biochemistry, and molecular biology of the intracellular matrix and : $ We developed a graphical format to consolidate the key clinical and genetic features of heritable disorders of connective tissue.
Marfan syndrome was used as a platform for by: Heritable Disorders of Connective Tissue. Abstract. How does one review a book that is a classic in its field and is now in its fourth edition. One way would be to compare it with the previous edition, but someone, realizing the value of that edition, has already "borrowed" it from my collection, and it is not readily available for.
A major development in the field was made by McKusick, who suggested that a group of disorders that included brittle bones in children (osteogenesis imperfecta), hyperextensible skin (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome), and characteristic distortions of skeleton (Marfan’s syndrome) be considered as “heritable disorders of connective tissue” and that mutations causing the disorders would be found in.

Lipoid Proteinosis and Heritable Disorders of Connective Tissue: Introduction Inherited connective tissue disorders are clinically and genetically diverse conditions affecting the skin, joints, and a variety of extracutaneous tissues, including the cardiovascular (CV) system.
The first third of Connective Tissue and Its Heritable Disorders covers the basic biology of connective tissue in great detail, although I found the treatment of the regulation of growth and development to be superficial compared with the review of the collagens.
Chapters on clinical disorders constitute the remainder of the book.
