What causes 3M syndrome?

3M syndrome is caused by genetic changes in one of three genes: CUL7, OBSL1, and CCDC8. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Diagnosis is based on the presence of clinical features. Genetic testing can confirm the diagnosis and identify the specific gene involved.

What is 3M syndrome?

Summary. Three M syndrome is an extremely rare genetic disorder characterized by low birth weight, short stature (dwarfism), characteristic abnormalities of the head and facial (craniofacial) area, distinctive skeletal malformations, and/or other physical abnormalities.

What is a weaver syndrome?
