Griscelli syndrome type 3. Abdominal examination revealed hepatosplenomegaly. C ] – May be same entity as Elejalde syndrome – See also Griscelli syndrome type 2 for a similar disorder with characteristic immunologic abnormalities and – Griscelli syndrome type 3 for a similar disorder without neurologic or immunologic abnormalities.

Spontaneous repigmentation of silvery hair in an infant with congenital hydrops fetalis and hypoproteinemia. Light and scanning electron microscopic examination of hair in Griscelli syndrome. In griscelli, Sanal et al [ 17 ] referred to neuroectodermal melanolysosomal disease as an allelic sindromw of Griscelli syndrome.

Serve d as a speaker or a member of a speakers bureau for: Takagishi and Murata [ 5 ] noted that a myosin Va mutation in rats is an animal model for the human hereditary neurological disease, Griscelli syndrome type 1.

Some have stated that it is the result of a distorted gene product responsible for early melanin formation.


Patients with Elejalde syndrome undergo neurologic collapse and eventually are not able to move or care for themselves.

These pigment granules contain the melanin providing the color to the skin, hair and eyes. Neurologic involvement in patients with atypical Chediak-Higashi disease.

Griscelli Syndrome

One review reported that the onset of Griscelli syndrome ranged from 1 month to 8 years, with a mean patient age of Partial albinism with immunodeficiency: As of Januaryabout 60 cases have been reported worldwide. The melanosomes are present in the center of melanocytes but must be transported to the outer sundrome of the cells and into other cells in order to provide the pigmentation. InLambert et al [ 16 ] stated that the neurologic abnormalities seen in Elejalde syndrome are probably not caused by abnormal neuromelanin deposition.

Finally, GS 3 presents as hypopigmentation in the hair and skin without another findings and is related to a mutation in the 2q This is a rare condition and only about 60 cases are reported globally.

Laboratory data revealed normal complete blood counts, peripheral smear, liver and renal function test and mildly elevated ESR. Neuroimaging findings consist of cerebellar hypodense areas, ventricular dilation, hyperdense areas compatible with inflammatory changes, white matter changes and periventricular calcifications [ 8 ].

Lethal hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome type II. Unusual Presentation of Griscelli Syndrome: Share Email Print Feedback Close. Myosin Va plays essential roles in maintaining normal mitosis, enhancing tumor cell motility and viability.

Síndrome de Griscelli

One report noted deaths of children aged 3 months to 4 years. Neurologic involvement is secondary to diffuse lympho-histiocytic organ infiltration or to undocumented viral brain infection [ 9 ]. This syndrome is presented in infancy and early childhood, generally between the ages.

RAB27A Sindrone syndrome 2. This boy demonstrated severe developmental delay, seizure activity, exotropia, nystagmus, ataxia, and silvery-gray hair and eyebrows.


She had hyper-reflexia, ataxia, dysdiadochokinesis, past pointing and intentional tremors which were suggestive of cerebellar involvement. Chest x-ray was normal. InWestbroek et al [ 17 ] reported a genomic RAB27A deletion found in a month-old Moroccan Griscelli syndrome patient and provided evidence that the loss of functional Rab27a in melanocytes of this Griscelli syndrome patient was partially compensated by the up-regulation of Rab27b, a homologue of Rab27a. His father, Mustaffa, told us that the process of the disease was very complicated in many aspects, sindromw we have simdrome times “.

Genetic testing confirms the diagnosis of the griscelli syndrome with the presence of the mutated gene.

A syndrome associating partial albinism and immunodeficiency. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis: Elejalde syndrome–a melanolysosomal neurocutaneous syndrome: In particular, one report describes a Griscelli syndrome type I patient alive at age 21 years without no problems except motor retardation and severe mental retardation and 2 patients with Griscelli syndrome type 3, healthy at ages 21 and 24 years, manifesting merely with eye brows, eyelashes, silvery gray hair, and pigmentary dilution.

The patient described by us presented in an unusual manner with a purely neurological picture without any hematological abnormalities or hepato-splenomegaly. She was noted to have silvery grey hairs, eyelashes and eyebrows since birth.

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man. The light microscopic evaluation of the hair revealed parcial albinism. Thus, one way of classifying Griscelli syndrome is with other diseases that are associated with HLH, such as Chediak-Higashi syndrome. Sign Up It’s Free!
