How To Remember Alport’s Syndrome Signs & Symptoms?

Alport’s syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects the kidneys and the ears. It is caused by mutations in the COL4A5 gene, which provides instructions for making a protein that helps to form the walls of tiny blood vessels in the kidneys and the ears.

These mutations can lead to the development of kidney problems, such as protein in the urine and kidney failure, as well as hearing loss.

Alport’s syndrome is typically inherited in an X-linked pattern, which means that it is more commonly found in males than in females. 

Here are the most common signs & symptoms of this syndrome

  • Hearing loss
  • Blood in the urine
  • Protein in the urine
  • Abnormal urine color
  • Foamy urine
  • Swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Kidney failure
