Disorders for TSPYL1 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for TSPYL1 Gene (604714)


  • Sudden infant death with dysgenesis of the testes syndrome (SIDDT) [MIM:608800]: Autosomal recessive disorder. Affected infants appear normal at birth, develop signs of visceroautonomic dysfunction early in life, and die before 12 months of age of abrupt cardiorespiratory arrest. Features included bradycardia, hypothermia, severe gastroesophageal reflux, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, and abnormal cardiorespiratory patterns during sleep. Genotypic males with SIDDT had fetal testicular dysgenesis and ambiguous genitalia, with findings such as intraabdominal testes, dysplastic testes, deficient fetal testosterone production, fusion and rugation of the gonadal sac, and partial development of the penile shaft. Female sexual development was normal. Affected infants had an unusual staccato cry, similar to the cry of a goat. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15273283}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
