cutis laxa

Overview

What is cutis laxa?

Cutis laxa are a group of genetic disorders that affect the body tissues that join and support other parts(connective tissues) in the body. Connective tissues provide support to skin, muscles, joints, and other organs. There are several different types of cutis laxa depending on which gene a pathogenic variant(s) is identified. Autosomal recessive forms of cutis laxa include types IA, IB, IC, IIA, IIB, IIIA and IIIB. Autosomal dominant forms of cutis laxa include type 1, 2, and 3.
