This website provides information on patients with mutations in the CEP57 gene, including clinical data, molecular data, management and research options.

Biallelic mutations in the CEP57 gene are responsible for a recessive multisystem disorder called Mosaic variegated aneuploidy 2 (MVA2) syndrome, characterized by growth retardation, typically of prenatal onset, distinctive facial features, endocrine, cardiovascular and skeletal abnormalities associated with mosaic aneuploidies involving multiple chromosomes and tissues resulting from defects in cell division. Not all individuals with a mutation in the CEP57 gene have all these features.

This website was created to share and collect information about clinic, management and research projects to gather more knowledge and provide better treatment of patients with mutations in the CEP57 gene.
