ectopic posterior pituitary Gene Set

Dataset HPO Gene-Disease Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description An abnormal anatomical location of the posterior lobe of the hypophysis, also known as the neurohypophysis. The posterior pituitary is normally present in the dorsal portion of the sella turcica, but when ectopic is usually near the median eminence. This defect is likely to be due to abnormal migration during embryogenesis. (Human Phenotype Ontology, HP_0011755)
