  • Scalp-ear-nipple syndrome (SENS) [MIM:181270]: A disease characterized by aplasia cutis congenita of the scalp, breast anomalies that range from hypothelia or athelia to amastia, and minor anomalies of the external ears. Less frequent clinical characteristics include nail dystrophy, dental anomalies, cutaneous syndactyly of the digits, and renal malformations. Penetrance appears to be high, although there is substantial variable expressivity within families. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23541344}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
