We describe laryngeal malformations and voice disorders in two new patients with the autosomal recessive Richieri-Costa and Pereira form of acrofacial dysostosis. This report confirms the data on the first five patients we had already presented in 1996.
Samples from 30 deaf probands exhibiting features suggestive of syndromic mitochondrial deafness or from families with maternal transmission of deafness were selected for investigation of mutations in the mitochondrial genes MT-RNR1 and MT-TS1. Patients with mutation m.1555A>G had been previously excluded from this sample. In the MT-RNR1 gene, five probands(More)
The cause of hearing impairment has not been elucidated in a large proportion of patients. We screened by 1-Mb array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) 29 individuals with syndromic hearing impairment whose clinical features were not typical of known disorders. Rare chromosomal copy number changes were detected in eight patients, four de novo(More)
We report on two boys, monozygotic twins born to normal and nonconsanguineous parents, presenting with an unusual facial appearance, cortical atrophy, dolichocephaly, short stature, cleft palate, micrognathia, prominent upper central incisors, bilateral Sidney line, minor foot deformities, unstableness in walking, early hypotonia, hyperreflexia,(More)
Laryngeal structural anomalies were described in 13 cases of Richieri-Costa Pereira syndrome, and four previously reported cases were reviewed. The 17 individuals examined had the typical laryngeal anomalies and vocal disorders previously described. The new findings are the laryngeal microweb observed in three cases and arytenoid anteriorization movement(More)
Here we describe a novel missense variant in the KCNQ4 gene and a private duplication at 7q31.1 partially involving two genes (IMMP2L and DOCK4). Both mutations segregated with nonsyndromic hearing loss in a family with three affected individuals. Initially, we identified the duplication in a screening of 132 unrelated cases of hearing loss with a multiplex(More)
