Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS)
Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is a disorder characterized by an idiopathic failure of the automatic control of breathing. It is frequently associated with a broad spectrum of dysautonomic symptoms, suggesting the involvement of genes widely expressed in the autonomic nervous system. In particular, the ASCL1-PHOX2A-PHOX2B developmental cascade was proposed as a candidate pathway. Recently, It has been showed that PHOX2B is the major CCHS locus, whose mutation accounts for 60% of cases.
