This website provides information on patients with MEOX1 gene, including clinical data, molecular data, management and research options.
Mutations in the MEOX1 gene cause an autosomal recessive form of Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS), a prototypic segmentation malformation of the cervical spine, manifesting clinically as a short neck with painless restriction in mobility and a low posterior hairline.
This website was created to share and collect information about the clinical spectrum, management options and research projects in order to gather more knowledge and provide better treatment of patients with mutations in the MEOX1 gene.
