Abstract

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) affects young infants and children. The underlying etiopathogenesis of this rare disease is due to the mutation of the elastin gene that is responsible for the elasticity of the arterial wall. As a result of inadequate elastin production, the major systemic arteries become abnormally rigid and can be manifested by an impediment to the blood flow.

Coarctation of the aorta, interrupted aortic arch, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome in three generations.

Coarctation of the aorta, interrupted aortic arch, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome in three generations.

ABSTRACT: Five members in three generations of a family were affected by a congenital heart disease. Four of them had mild or severe coarctation of the aorta (CoA), either isolated or in association with other cardiac defects. Fetal echocardiography allowed prenatal diagnosis in one pregnancy at risk. This family suggests that a rare form of CoA could be the result of an autosomal dominant mutation with high penetrance and variable expressivity rather than polygenic inheritance.
