It is commonly inherited as an autosomal dominant disorder but Autosomal recessive and sporadic cases have also been reported [1]. Here, we present a 10-year-old boy with extensive aplasia cutis congenita and limb anomalies as well as mild pachygyria and focal acrania in neuroimaging [2]. Functionally, CdGAP-Ajuba interaction maintains junctional integrity in homeostasis and diseases: (i) gain-of-function CdGAP mutants found in Adams-Oliver Syndrome patients strongly destabilize cell-cell contacts and (ii) CdGAP mRNA levels are inversely correlated with E-cadherin protein expression in different cancers [3]. Several complicated cases of Adams-Oliver syndrome have been reported, in which flap failures were encountered and other alternatives had to be used to close critical scalp defects [4]. Here, the case of a 4-year-old Child with Adams-Oliver syndrome and a complex cranial defect with exposed titanium mesh is described [5].

The patient was successfully treated with Epidermal growth factor (EGF) infused foam dressings and subsequent split-thickness skin grafting [6]. DLL4 has recently been identified as a causative gene of an Autosomal Dominant type of AOS with milder symptoms [7]. EOGT transfers GlcNAc (N-acetylglucosamine) to Ser or Thr in secreted and membrane proteins that contain one or more epidermal growth factor-like repeats with a specific consensus sequence [8]. However it is most frequently an isolated disorder, it can be associated with other anomalies, such as the Adams-Oliver syndrome, the association with a fetus papyraceus or with an epidermolysis bullosa [9]. It is believed that Adams-Oliver syndrome without major organ abnormalities does not necessarily alter the normal lifespan [10].

In its more severe forms, Adams-Oliver syndrome can involve the cardiovascular system, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and genitourinary system and should require prompt evaluation by appropriate subspecialists [11]. We also demonstrate a proof-of-principle application of the method to prioritize genes causing Adams-Oliver syndrome, a genetically heterogeneous rare disease [12]. EOGT is responsible for Adams-Oliver syndrome, a rare congenital disorder characterized by aplasia cutis congenita and terminal transverse limb defects, often accompanied by cardiovascular and neurological defects [13]. Roughly, INCPH diagnosis is based on clinical criteria and the formal exclusion of any other causes of portal Hypertension [14]. Currently, treatment of INCPH relies on the prevention of complications related to portal Hypertension, following current guidelines of cirrhotic portal Hypertension [15].

Here, we report five heterozygous NOTCH1 variants in unrelated individuals with Adams-Oliver syndrome (AOS), a rare disease with major features of aplasia cutis of the Scalp and terminal transverse limb defects [16]. We identified an infant with mild aplasia cutis congenita and terminal transverse limb defects, developmental delay and a severe, Diffuse angiopathy with incomplete microvascularization [17]. Although the physiological function of O-GlcNAc in mammals has not yet been elucidated, exome sequencing identified homozygous EOGT Mutations in patients with Adams-Oliver syndrome, a rare congenital disorder characterized by aplasia cutis congenita and terminal transverse limb defects [18]. Adams-Oliver syndrome is the association of aplasia cutis congenita with terminal transverse limb reduction defects with or without cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita [19]. The patient presented with brachydactyly involving all the digits of his Hands and shortening of both big toes along with aplasia cutis on the Scalp [20].

The present girl had occipital encephalocele, large Scalp defects, aplasia cutis congenita, terminal transverse limb defects and Bilateral Cleft Lip And Palate [21]. This can be isolated ACC occurring on the Scalp, with or without underlying ectopic neural tissue, or ACC can be associated with other conditions such as Adams-Oliver syndrome or epidermolysis bullosa [22]. The prototype system features a structured organization with distinct partitions for background information, recent publications, and community discussions [23]. The software design allows volunteer editors to create a themed website, implement a limited set of topic pages, and connect the software to dynamic RSS feeds providing information about recent news or advances [24]. The prototype was assessed by a fraction of the disease sites developed (8 out of 27), including Aarskog-Scott syndrome, Aniridia, Adams-Oliver syndrome, Cat Eye syndrome, kabuki syndrome, Leigh syndrome, Peters anomaly, and rothmund-thomson syndrome [25].

The patient had aplasia cutis congenita with partial aplasia of the skull Bones, and terminal transverse limb malformations characteristic of the disease [26].
