WERNER SYNDROME, WRN
(OMIM ID: #277700 )


Werner syndrome has been found to be caused by mutations in the RECQL2 gene (604611), which encodes a homolog of the E. coli RecQ DNA helicase. The features of Werner syndrome are scleroderma-like skin changes, especially in the extremities, cataract, subcutaneous calcification, premature arteriosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, and a wizened and prematurely aged facies. The habitus is characteristic, with short stature, slender limbs, and stocky trunk. The nose is beaked.
