    What syndrome is this

    Advertisements



    First, what is the definition of syndrome.
    Second, what is the difference between syndrome and disease.
    Finally, guess what syndrome is this:

    A kid with renal failure, congenital cataract, and deafness.

    Syndrome is combination of signs and symptoms. For example, nephrotic syndrome is oedema, hypoalbuminaemia, severe proteinuria and hypercholesterolaemia.

    Disease is illness, disorder of body or mind. For example, glomerulonephritis. Disease is manifested by syndrome. E.g. glomerulonephritis can be manifested as nephrotic syndrome, nephritic syndrome...

    Alport syndrome.

    Syndrome

    1. Syndrome: is a constelation of sings and symptoms that share similar patophysiology and can be caused by different etiologies
    2. Disease: A disease is any abnormal condition of the body or mind that causes discomfort, dysfunction, or distress to the person affected or those in contact with the person. Sometimes the term is used broadly to include injuries, disabilities, syndromes, symptoms, deviant behaviors, and atypical variations of structure and function, while in other contexts these may be considered distinguishable categories

    That syndrome is Alports syndome:
    X-linked mutations in the gene encoding what is called the basement membrane specific type IV collagen

    a syndrome affects more than one organ system, whereas
    a disease affects one.

    think about it...ie down's syndrome....many organ systems
    crohn's disease....gi, not that extraintestinal manifestations can't secondarily present.....but a disease is rooted in one organ system, and a syndrome spans more than one
