All Causes Beginning with the Letter X:


X-Linked Lymphoproliferative Syndrome

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Lymphoproliferative Syndrome is also known as:
• Duncan Disease
• EBV Susceptibility (EBVS)
• Epstein-Barr Virus-Induced Lymphoproliferative Disease in Males
• Immunodeficiency-5 (IMD5)
• Purtilo Syndrome
• X-Linked Progressive Combined Variable Immunodeficiency
• XLP

What is X-Linked Lymphoproliferative Syndrome?
X-Linked Lymphoproliferative (XLP) Syndrome is an extremely rare inherited immunodeficiency disorder characterized by a defective immune system that is powerfully responsive to infection with the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). This virus is common among the general population and is relatively well-known because it is the cause of Infectious Mononucleosis (IM), usually with no long-lasting effects. However, in individuals with XLP, exposure to EBV may result in severe, life-threatening fulminant hepatitis; abnormally low levels of antibodies in the blood and body secretions, resulting in increased susceptibility to various infections; malignancies of certain types of lymphoid tissue (B-cell lymphomas); and/or other abnormalities.

X-Linked Retinoschisis

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Retinoschisis is also known as:
• Juvenile Retinoschisis
• XLRS

What is X-Linked Retinoschisis?
X-Linked Retinoschisis (XLRS) is a genetic condition affecting boys and men. It is typically diagnosed in childhood, in some cases as early as three months of age. The main symptom is reduced vision that cannot be improved with glasses. While some people with XLRS may experience progressive vision loss throughout their life, other people may have relatively stable vision throughout their lifetime.

X-Linked Myopathy with Excessive Autophagy

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Myopathy with Excessive Autophagy is also known as:
• XMEA

What is X-Linked Myopathy with Excessive Autophagy?
X-Linked Myopathy with Excessive Autophagy (XMEA) is an extremely rare genetic disorder characterized by myopathy. The disorder is fully expressed in males only and is characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness, especially in the legs. Onset is usually during childhood often between 5-10 years of age.

X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy is also known as:
• MTM
• Myotubular Myopathy
• XLCNM
• X-Linked Centronuclear Myopathy
• XLMTM

What is X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy?
X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy (XLMTM) is a rare genetic neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by muscle weakness that is most typically severe but can range from mild to profound. Symptoms are often present at birth, though may develop later in infancy or early childhood. Rarely, symptoms may not present until adolescence or adulthood.

X-Linked Opitz G/BBB Syndrome

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Opitz G/BBB Syndrome is also known as:
• Hypertelorism-Hypospadius Syndrome (obsolete)
• Opitz BBBG Syndrome
• Opitz-G Syndrome
• Telecanthus-Hypospadius Syndrome (obsolete)
• XLOS

What is X-Linked Opitz G/BBB Syndrome?
X-Linked Opitz G/BBB Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by facial anomalies, respiratory and genitourinary abnormalities and other midline defects as well as developmental delay and intellectual disabilities.

X-Linked Protoporphyria

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Jeans Ribbon for Genetic Diseases

X-Linked Protoporphyria is also known as:
• XLDPP
• X-Linked Dominant Protoporphyria
• XLP

What is X-Linked Protoporphyria?
X-Linked Protoporphyria is an extremely rare genetic disorder characterized by an abnormal sensitivity to the sun that can cause severe pain, burning, and itching of sun-exposed skin. Symptoms may occur immediately or shortly after exposure to the sun, including direct exposure or indirect exposure such as sunlight that passes through window glass or that is reflected off water or sand. Redness and swelling of affected areas can also occur. Blistering and severe scarring occur infrequently. Chronic episodes of photosensitivity may lead to changes in the skin of sun-exposed areas. Some individuals eventually develop potentially severe liver disease.

Xeroderma Pigmentosum

Awareness Ribbon Color:

Zebra Ribbon for Rare Diseases

Xeroderma Pigmentosum is also known as:
• XP
• Xeroderma Pigmentosa

What is Xeroderma Pigmentosum?
Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) is a rare inherited skin disorder characterized by a heightened sensitivity to the DNA damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation (UV). The main source of UV is the sun. The symptoms of XP can be seen in any sun-exposed area of the body. The effects are greatest on the skin, the eyelids and the surface of the eyes but the tip of the tongue may also be damaged.

In addition, approximately 25% of XP patients also develop abnormalities of the nervous system manifesting as progressive neuro-degeneration with hearing loss. People with XP have a 10,000-fold increased risk for developing Skin Cancer including Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. They also have a 2000-fold increased risk for cancer of the eye and surrounding ocular tissues. These symptoms appear early in life, typically before age 10 years.
