Arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction, and cholestasis 1

The ARC syndrome 1 is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by loss-of-funktion mutations of the VPS33B gene. The disorder is characterized by arthrogryposis (persisten flexure of a joint), renal dysfunction (metabolic acidosis), and cholestasis.

Epidemiology

Prevalence ist still unknown. About 100 cases are published so far.
