Name
Hirschsprung disease (HD)
Description
Hirschsprung disease (HD) is a relatively common cause of intestinal obstruction in the newborn. It is characterized by absence of ganglion cells in the distal bowel and extending proximally for varying distances. Recently, several genes have been identified to be associated with HD. The functions of the gene products include transcription factors regulating gene expression in neural crest cells and in participants in signaling pathways between intestinal mesenchymal cells and neural crest cells.
