Familial and genetic aspects of neuronal intestinal dysplasia and Hirschsprung's disease

Moore S.W. ; Kaschula R.O.C. ; Cywes S. (1993)


A familial occurrence of Hirschsprung's disease and neuronal intestinal dysplasia (NID) is reported. Familial occurrence of NID in a parent and long-segment Hirschsprung's disease in two children in a family as well as a further report of NID in monozygotic twins is described. The linkage of these neurodevelopmental conditions is explored and a common etiologic mechanism for the two conditions is postulated.
