Bardet Biedl Syndrome (BBS)

Definition

Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive ciliopathy with multisystemic compromise, affecting vision, kidneys, and eventually heart, liver and digestive system. Obesity, mental retardation, hypogonadism and polydactilia are  common findings. The prevalence is 1: 100 000. Although near 21 genes have been described, mutations in BBS1 and BBS10 account for the majority of genotypes (51% and 20% respectively)

Why to perform genetic testing in cases with suspected BBS?

  • To confirm the diagnosis
  • To better perform risk stratification and prognosis
  • To select the best therapeutic option for that specific patient based on the genotype
  • To identify other relatives at risk to develop the disease

 

Our BBS panel

ARL6, BBS1, BBS2, BBS4, BBS5,  BBS7,  BBS9, BBS10,  BBS12, C8ORF37, CEP290, LZTFL1, MKS1,  MKKS, TTC8, WDPCP

Important: All our panels can be modified based on the phenotype. Please contact us if you have questions

What to expect from this test: The yield of the genetic test is near 80%
