Wakayama Symposium: Notch-FoxL2-α-SMA axis in eyelid levator muscle development and congenital blepharophimosis.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

This review summarizes our recent findings regarding the Notch signaling pathway in regulating normal eyelid morphogenesis and its role in the pathogenesis of human congenital blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES). We used genetic and molecular biological ...

[Blepharophimosis ptosis epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) (corrected)].
Last Updated: Jun 25, 2012

The blepharophimosis ptosis epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES, also known as Waardenburg syndrome) was probably first reported by Ammon in 1841 and discribed more fully by Vignes in 1889. Its primary effects on the soft tissue of the midface are blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus ...

Premature ovarian insufficiency as a variable feature of blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome associated with c.223C > T p.(Leu75Phe) FOXL2 mutation: a case report.
Last Updated: Mar 09, 2020

FOXL2 gene mutations cause blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) and may be associated with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI). Two types of BPES were described in the literature. BPES type 2 is a simple association of inherited developmental defects of the ...

Screening of a large cohort of blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome patients reveals a very strong paternal inheritance bias and a wide spectrum of novel FOXL2 mutations.
Last Updated: Sep 04, 2019

Blepharophimosis, Ptosis, and Epicanthus inversus Syndrome (BPES) is caused by autosomal dominant mutations in FOXL2. There are two forms of BPES: type I (with primary ovarian insufficiency (POI)) and type II (without POI). Data are presented from a large cohort of 177 BPES probands. ...

Clinical characterization and identification of five novel FOXL2 pathogenic variants in a cohort of 12 Mexican subjects with the syndrome of blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus.
Last Updated: Jun 17, 2019

Blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) is an autosomal dominant entity characterized by eyelid malformations and caused by mutations in the forkhead box L2 (FOXL2) gene. Clinical and genetic analyses of large cohorts of BPES patients from different ethnic origins ...
