congenital deafness with inner ear agenesis, microtia and microdontia
Monday 3 December 2007
Definition: Autosomal recessive congenital deafness with by type I microtia, microdontia, and profound congenital deafness associated with a complete absence of inner ear structures (Michel aplasia) (MIM.610706).
The autosomal recessive combination of congenital deafness with inner ear agenesis (Michel aplasia), microtia, and microdontia can be caused by mutations in the FGF3 gene (MIM.164950).
germline mutations of FGF3 (MIM.164950)
