MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Synonyms: RAMSVPS
Modes of inheritance:
Autosomal recessive inheritance
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Intellectual Product
Sources: HPO, Orphanet
Autosomal recessive inheritance refers to genetic conditions that occur only when mutations are present in both copies of a given gene (i.e., the person is homozygous for a mutation, or carries two different mutations of the same gene, a state referred to as compound heterozygosity).
Gene (location): IGFBP7 (4q12)
OMIM®: 614224
Orphanet: ORPHA284247


Retinal arterial macroaneurysm is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by the bilateral appearance of 'beading' along the major retinal arterial trunks, with the subsequent formation of macroaneurysms. Affected individuals also have supravalvular pulmonic stenosis, often requiring surgical correction (summary by Abu-Safieh et al., 2011). [from OMIM]
