614557 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, kyphoscoliotic type, 2 - rare aortic rupture and occasional patent ductus arteriosus, with other cardiac involvement being tricuspid and mitral valve insufficiency.

6 variants described on ClinVar missense and truncating: Giunta et al 2018 Genet Med 20:42 PMID:28617417 describe 17 affected patients from 15 families all are homozygous for a total of 4 different pathogenic variants. A summary of this and a previous publication show that 6/20 patients have vascular abnormalities. This publication includes one patient with coronary artery dissection, one with a dilated aorta and one with borderline aortic root diameter. Baumann et al 2012 Am J Hum Genet 90:201 PMID:22265013 describe 6 patients from 5 families who are homozygous or compound heterozygous for FKBP14 variants and have some supporting functional work in FKBP14 deficient fibroblasts. One patient has aortic rupture.
