  • Cold-induced sweating syndrome 3 (CISS3) [MIM:617055]: A form of cold-induced sweating syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by profuse sweating induced by cool surroundings (temperatures of 7 to 18 degrees Celsius). Patients manifest, in the neonatal period, orofacial weakness with impaired sucking and swallowing, resulting in poor feeding. Affected infants show a tendency to startle, with contractions of the facial muscles in response to tactile stimuli or during crying, trismus, abundant salivation, and opisthotonus. These features are referred to as Crisponi syndrome and can result in early death in infancy. Patients who survive into childhood have hyperhidrosis, mainly of the upper body, in response to cold temperatures, and sweat very little with heat. Additional abnormalities include a high-arched palate, nasal voice, depressed nasal bridge, inability to fully extend the elbows and kyphoscoliosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:27392078}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Retinitis pigmentosa 42 (RP42) [MIM:612943]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19520207, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20547956, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21828050, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22084217}.
