Human genes for nail-patella syndrome

Nail-patella syndrome [DOID:9467]

Nail–patella syndrome (NPS) is a genetic disorder that results in small, poorly developed nails and kneecaps, but can also affect many other areas of the body, such as the elbows, chest, and hips. The name "nail-patella" can be very misleading because the syndrome often affects many other areas of the body, including even the production of certain proteins.:666 It is also referred to as iliac horn syndrome, hereditary onychoostedysplasia, Fong disease or Turner–Kiser syndrome.
