BACKGROUND Otocephaly or dysgnathia complex is characterised by mandibular hypoplasia/agenesis, ear anomalies, microstomia, and microglossia; the molecular basis of this developmental defect is largely unknown in humans. METHODS AND RESULTS This study reports a large family in which two cousins with micro/anophthalmia each gave birth to at least one child(More)
In this study, we aimed to make a comparison between chromosomal effects caused by conventional phototherapy and intensive phototherapy in jaundiced newborns. The study group included 83 newborns with gestation age of > or =35 weeks, and on days 3-10 after birth. Newborns were divided into four groups on the basis of total serum bilirubin (TSB) levels upon(More)
OBJECTIVE The 45,X/46,XY mosaic karyotype is expressed by a spectrum of genital phenotypes, ranging from normal males through to ambiguous genitalia and to normal females. CASE REPORTS We present three cases of men with azoospermia or severe oligozoospermia, and a 45,X/46,XY mosaic karyotype and two with a Y-chromosome microdeletion. Phenotypically, they(More)
PURPOSE Although deep vein thrombosis and thromboembolic diseases differ among various races, they are still important in our day. The difficulties in treatment and following-up of these diseases are caused by secret genetic mutations rather than predisposing factors. METHODS Between January 2011 and May 2013, patients who were traced for deep vein(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the association between familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and keratoconus (KC). METHODS This retrospective case-control study was performed to compare the prevalence of KC in patients with FMF with the corresponding prevalence in control patients without FMF referred to Genetic Diagnostic Center at Diskapi Yildirim Beyazit Training(More)
Two types of gynecologic tumors are commonly described in the Turner syndrome, the first one is gonadoblastoma, which occurs in patients with Y chromosome abnormalities, and the second one is endometrial carcinoma which is mostly related with exogenous estrogen usage. Here, we describe an extremely rare case of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva in a(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was to determine whether inherited thrombophilia increases the risk of pre-eclampsia (PE) or interferes with its clinical course. MATERIAL AND METHODS We included 50 patients with severe PE and 50 healthy pregnant women. Patients were evaluated for inherited thrombophilia. RESULTS Fourteen patients in the study group was factor V(More)
We report a female infant with partial trisomy 8p (8p11.2-->pter) and deletion of 13q (13q32-->qter). She was born with mild hypotonia, intrauterine growth retardation, microcephaly, micrognathia, large low set ears, pectus excavatum, anteriorly placed anus, and bilateral clinodactyly. Echocardiography showed left ventricular hypertrophy, bicuspid aortic(More)
INTRODUCTION Nuclear medicine workers are occupationally exposed to chronic ionizing radiation. It is known that ionizing radiation may have damaging effects on chromosomes. In the present study, we investigated the genotoxic effects of ionizing radiation on nuclear medicine workers. We used two different indicators of genotoxicity methods: sister chromatid(More)
Objective. The most common form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is 21-hydroxylase (21-OH) deficiency due to mutation of the CYP21A2 gene. Patients with nonclassical CAH (NC-CAH) are usually asymptomatic at birth and typically present in late childhood, adolescence, or adulthood with symptoms of excessive androgen secretion. Subfertility is relative(More)
